Twelve year old Jamie's family lives on the road, stealing what they can and selling it on. Although Jamie is used to this life he doesn't much like it. When his dad is asked to do a job in rural Alderston for a mysterious client, Jamie hopes they may settle for a while. But the people of Alderston don't like outsiders and the town harbours sinister, centuries' old secrets which unfortunately Jamie has unwittingly uncovered…

This disturbing tale in the supernatural, zombie/horror genre has a refreshingly inventive storyline and credible and likeable protagonists the reader can really root for. A very rewarding and exciting page turner.
