Billy Clikkâ€™s parents are never home at night. He wonders why so much of their work is done after dark. Are they really exterminating insects? Or is their business a cover for something more sinister? When Billy catches his parents in the actâ€”saving a small island from an invasion of something other than bugsâ€”the truth is out. Jim and Linda Clikk are members of a secret organization whose mission is to protect humans from monsters, or creatches. But before Billy can join the real family business, heâ€™ll have to prove himself. And when his parents are suddenly called to India to find out whatâ€™s lurking in the caves beneath the Taj Mahal, it looks like heâ€™s going to get his chance sooner than he thought.
