The last thing Billy Lovecraft’s parents sent him before the crash was a photo of something on the wing of their plane.
Now he’s stuck with a horrible and heart-breaking mystery: What was that awful creature, and why were his parents targeted?
It’s up to Billy to gather a team of like-minded kids and lead them through a dark new reality where the monsters are real, not everyone is who they seem to be, and an ancient alien wants to devour the world.

I was given the opportunity to read this book as part of the Blog Tour, and I had a strong suspicion that it would be a fun read. I was delighted to find that I wasn't wrong.
Billy Lovecraft is a 12 year old boy with an awful secret and a dangerous legacy left behind by his parents after their untimely demise. Armed with a warning and a gruesome, frightening photo of what possibly killed his parents (a nod to the Twilight Zone?), Billy approaches a group of his fellow students with a proposition and a hope. Let's form the Cthulhu Detective Squad for real!
With plenty of money from an insurance settlement to fund their wild expeditions, Billy teams up with his new friends to solve his parents' murder and learn the secrets of the second basement.
BILLY LOVECRAFT SAVES the WORLD is funny and clever, full of Lovecraftian horror for the middle-grade reader, but also for just about anyone who wants to enjoy an action-adventure told from a 12 year old's viewpoint. I highly recommend this one!
