Description
Macabre adventure ensues when a boy becomes a shepherd of the dead.

When Ben Harvester meets the mysterious Mr. October in London's Highgate Cemetery, he has no idea what a strange and dramatic turn his life is about to take. But he soon discovers that Mr. October works for the Ministry of Pandemonium, a secret organization responsible for guiding the spirits of the dead to the afterlife. And Mr. October wants Ben to be his new recruit!

It's not a typical after-school job, but Ben embraces it. Visiting the crime scenes and accident sites and the solemn hospital corridors where lost souls wander, Ben's eyes are opened to a world of magic and wonder. But his eyes open on horror, too. Because the Ministry is not the only group interested in tracking down lost souls. The ghouls and demons known as the Lords of Sundown are harvesting souls for their own sinister purpose. And they don't look kindly on those who stand in their way...
