Jamie Carpenter's father is dead, his mother is missing, and he was just rescued by an enormous creature named Frankenstein. Now Jamie is pulled into a secret organization responsible for policing the supernatural, founded more than a century ago by Abraham Van Helsing. . . . Department Nineteen takes us through history, across Europe, and beyond - from the cobbled streets of Victorian London to prohibition-era New York, from the icy wastes of Arctic Russia to the treacherous mountains of Transylvania. Part modern thriller, part classic horror, it's packed with mystery, mayhem, and a level of suspense that makes a Darren Shan novel look like a romantic comedy.

Praise For Department 19: First Edition (Department Nineteen #1)

"Gripping, gory, and violent, this isn't for the faint-hearted - but it's also clever, and moving, and wittily done. I can't wait for the next installment." -John Connolly, bestselling author of Every Dead Thing, The Reapers and The Book of Lost Things.
