Maddie, Max, and Theo have come to the most haunted neighborhood in the most haunted city in America—and they're staying in the spooky Vampire House. While their father searches for evidence to prove its blood-sucker is fake, they set out on a search of their own through a city of the dead to a crumbling Voodoo shack. The Mattigan kids are on the case—but sometimes even the most clever plan can be a recipe for disaster.

Mauro Sorghienti grew up in Porto San Giorgio, a charming Italian town on the Adriatic coast, where he found inspirations reading old fantasy stories and ancient myths from northern Europe. Not far from there, is the State Institute of Art where he learned the basics of his craft before changing paths and graduating as a Childhood Communities Assistant. However, the graphic arts were always his main passion and soon he was able to make that his main occupation. He has gained twenty years of experience in illustration and cartooning, playing creative roles for many projects from the earliest stages of their development on to completion. He loves drawing, painting, and when he is in the mood, also modeling odd tangible things. Sometimes, he also has a bit of free time to spend on his hobby as a board games enthusiast!
