This is the third story in the 'Jonathan's Ghost' series. Jonathan and his school friends are on a residential visit to a desolate manor when Dave, a doodle-bug victim and Jonathan's ghostly friend, joins them. Dave warns of dangerous spirits from which there is no protection. To make things worse, one of these spirits is a murderer who's ready to murder again. It's a finger-tingling tale of the children's vulnerability faced with awesome power. A superb piece of fiction as back-up to Second World War studies and an excellent spine-chiller to be read alone and preferably in the dark (with a torch, of course)!
