The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson

The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson
Shades of London #3
Published on February 10, 2015 by Putnam Juvenile

Summary: "Rory and her friends are reeling from a series of sudden and tragic events. While racked with grief, Rory tries to determine if she acted in time to save a member of the squad. If she did, how do you find a ghost? Also, Rory’s classmate Charlotte has been kidnapped by Jane and her nefarious organization. Evidence is uncovered of a forty-year-old cult, ten missing teenagers, and a likely mass murder. Everything indicates that Charlotte’s in danger, and it seems that something much bigger and much more terrible is coming.

Time is running out as Rory fights to find her friends and the ghost squad struggles to stop Jane from unleashing her spectral nightmare on the entire city. In the process, they'll discover the existence of an organization that underpins London itself—and Rory will learn that someone she trusts has been keeping a tremendous secret."  --From Goodreads

I don't know exactly what to say about this book.  It was pretty good, and I did enjoy it.  I thought the introduction of a cult was just what the whole overall story needed.  It pushed the plot forward, even after Stephen's "death".  Finding Stephen and moving the Oswulf Stone made the story drag.  The readers probably could have benefited from both of those scenes being cut in length.

Overall, I do like this series, and I think that The Shadow Cabinet is a good addition to this series.  

Disclosure: I borrowed a copy from my local library.
