The Figure in the Shadows is John Bellairs’s second book in the Lewis Barnavelt series, continuing the adventures of Lewis Barnavelt with his new friend, Rose Rita Pottinger; his uncle, Jonathan; and their neighbor, Mrs. Zimmermann.  The story centers around Lewis gaining access to his great-grandfather's Civil War-era travel trunk and finding his relative's good luck coin.  Events that follow prove that the coin is more than just an innocent piece of metal and that Lewis is in certain danger.
