'I'll stalk the place. As long as I have breath I'll be at Bowland's heels. I'll lay them low.' Dan MacAvity's revengeful curse against Bowland's Football Club, who have just fired him, fulfils all its tragic potential in the havoc it wreaks on succeeding generations of club officials, players and supporters. It takes a mysterious, ailing old man and a young psychic girl to right past wrongs and make the two facets of Dan MacAvity one. Dennis Hamely has managed to combine the two popular themes of sport and horror into one successful tale full of thrills, suspense and variety. It's a bit melodramatic at times but most young readers ought to stick with it to the last page.
