The Dead Gentleman

(2011)
A novel by

 
 
The dead are up and walking, and the Gentleman is at the door...

Featuring a kid hero, time travel, and otherworld portals in unexpected places (maybe there are monsters under your bed), The Dead Gentleman is a wild ride between parallel New York City timestreams - 1901 and today. Eleven-year-old Tommy Learner is a street orphan and an unlikely protege to the Explorers, a secret group dedicated to exploring portals - the hidden doorways to other worlds. But while investigating an attercop (man-eating spider) in the basement of an old hotel, Tommy is betrayed - and trapped. And it's then that his world collides with that of modern-day Jezebel Lemon, who - until the day she decides to explore her building's basement - had no bigger worries than homework and boys. Now, Jezebel and Tommy must thwart the Dead Gentleman - a legendary villain whose last unconquered world is our own planet Earth, a realm where the dead stay dead. Until now. Can two kids put an end to this ancient evil and his legions of Gravewalkers?
