From New York Times bestselling author Chris d’Lacey comes a brand-new paranormal action-adventure series!

When Michael Malone is assigned a new mystery to solve by the UNICORNE agency, he knows he’s in for another strange and deadly adventure. This time, he is sent to a local comic shop, where UNICORNE agents have detected unusual activity — specifically the prominent display of a comic book starring a disturbingly familiar heroine . . .

The more Michael investigates the comic shop, however, the more he realizes that something much more sinister lurks within its walls. An invisible army has come to life, with a menacing maniac at its head. Even worse, Michael gets the sense that some of his fellow UNICORNE agents cannot be trusted, and that his own life may be in danger. Can he solve the case and defeat his enemies before it’s too late? And is he any closer to finding his missing father?

Praise for UFiles #1: A Dark Inheritance:

" Will hook readers from page one and won’t let up until the dramatic conclusion. D’Lacey manages to make the implausible seem possible." —School Library Journal

" The snappy pace and amiable protagonist who knows he is making things up on the fly, and notes so with wry resignation, make for a lively and enjoyable read." —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

" The story moves along quickly and keeps readers guessing . . . with tantalizing adventures yet to come, it’s likely [readers] will stick around for future installments." —Booklist
