    DescriptionWhen Elliott and his brother, Ben, move into the old and crumbling Glebe House they don't expect to find themselves sharing it with ghosts. But soon sinister events are unfolding. An old diary reveals glimpses of the mansion's past - and of a terrible tragedy. A mysterious woman talks to the dead. And evil lurks in the East Wing - a hideous labyrinth of passageways devised by a truly twisted mind. Can Elliott and his family escape the clutches of Glebe House? Or will they be trapped in the maze of corridors, forever hunted by the dead?

    Review quote
    "The more you read, the more the author inflicts a dark and chilling sinister world that will leave you chilled to the bone" MR RIPLEY'S ENCHANTED BOOKS "Beautifully written and truly chilling ghost story set in a creepy mansion and featuring lost children, fearsome hunters and echoing nursery rhymes. Late tweens and teens who like a shiver will love this book... mostly I liked the creepiness and the tension, which ratchets up and up until its almost unbearable" (5 stars) THE BOOKBAG "Fast-paced, thoroughly gripping with as many twists and turns and dead-ends as the dreadful East Wing itself... read it on a warm summer afternoon when you have plenty of company!" CORNFLOWER BOOKS "What at first glance appearsd to be a run-of-the-mill ghost story soon turns into a really creepy scare-fest. The use of a diary to give a back-story to the horrible goings-on is a stroke of genius and notches the fear factor way up high." FLIPSIDE "McNish is one of our most talented thriller writers, with an ability to make your spine crawl and your heart pound with his stylish pared down prose." -- Amanda Craig THE TIMES "A superb ghost story for early teens: Cliff McNish is expert in ratcheting up the horror..." ARMADILLO "A truly haunting story that stirs the hairs on the back of your neck. Fast paced and thrilling, the reader is hurtled along as the terrible events at Glebe House unfold... faint hearts beware!" CAROUSEL "This story chilled me to the bone..." BFK BOOKS
