about

The war is over, and the little village of Coney Cley is bereft of all excitement - at least, that's what Josh and his sister Jinty think. Then they venture down an abandoned lane and see a ghostly face at the window of a deserted house... But there are more shocks in store for the childrenwhen they discover that the "skull" is an escaped prisoner of war, and he's not the only hidden secret in their village. A gripping and accessible thriller from the author of Room 13 and Stone Cold.

Editorial Reviews

"It's beautifully-written, short and to the point, with sparkling, pithy dialogue and a tense plot. I loved the way Swindells leads the reader one way at the beginning but is really taking his readers somewhere completely different. Josh and Jinty begin the story with a ghost hunt, but soonthey realise that the living world has as much in the way of horror as any spectral imaginings. It's a tough lesson, but they rise to the challenge and so although this story engages with serious and frightening themes, it's also incredibly uplifting." --Jill Murphy, The Bookbag
