Publisher Comments:

"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?
