The Society of Unrelenting Vigilance by Glenn Dakin
Theo has lived his entire life in just three rooms and is kept completely unaware of the outside world by his guardian, Dr. Saint. According to Dr. Saint, Theo has a contagious disease that will make him extremely dangerous to anyone he touches so he wears long gloves at all times. But on a rare trip outside to the cemetary on his birthday Theo finds a gift addressed to him on a tombstone. The gift tells him to go out to the garden the next evening and when he does, Theo is carried off by a garghoul. Theo learns that he actually is the heir of the legendary Candle Man who could melt people just by touching them. But he also learns that Dr. Saint is not the caring guardian he has made himself out to be.
