What does the mysterious stranger want? Is the Spook's past catching up with him? And what dangers will Tom face if his master's secrets are revealed?

    Author Information
    Joseph Delaney is a retired English teacher. He has three children and nine grandchildren and is a wonderful public speaker available for conference, library and bookshop events. His home is in the middle of Boggart territory and his village has a boggart called the Hall Knocker, which was laid to rest under the step of a house near the church. Most of the places in the Spook's books are based on real places in Lancashire. And the inspiration behind the stories often comes from local ghost stories and legends.
    Review quote
    "Ideal for the reader who has outgrown Harry Potter. Be warned, these books are seriously scary ... Beautifully produced and consistently surprising, the weird and wonderful Wardstone Chronicles are an annual treat" The Times "The spine-chilling escapades of the Spook and his apprentice continue apace" Waterstone's Books Quarterly "This is terrific writing coupled with such an exciting and frightening storyline of good versus evil that you really will be hanging on to the bedcovers while reading it" My Child
