Publisher's Summary

Our last autumn of innocence. Star-spangled nights. Mist-wreathed woodland. A twisted shape watching coldly from the shadows.

Industrial Lancashire, 1974. The kids in the coal-mining town of Ashburn love the waning of the year. Fancy dress and scary stories for Halloween. Fireworks and treacle toffee on Guy Fawkes Night. And a month after that, snow and the approach of Christmas. But, this particular autumn will be memorable for entirely different reasons. Because, this year, someone is killing the children of Ashburn. Or should that be something?

While police and parents search for a maniac, Stephen Carter and his schoolmates know better. They may be on the cusp of adulthood, but there’s still enough of the youngster left in each of them to recognize the work of an evil supernatural being unique to these deserts of slag heap and coal tips.

A coming of age story from the dark imagination of Sunday Times best-selling crime and horror writer Paul Finch. A must for all fans of It, Stranger Things, and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

"A born storyteller." (Peter James, author)

A Classic Spooky Yarn

This spooky All Hallows story is a creepy boys' adventure in the spirit of Something Wicked This Way Comes and Thief of Time. A perfect chill for the Hallows' Eve Night

A great scare!

When you’re young the fear of local folk tales and mythes are enough to keep you up at night especially if they were true? This is a really good book and that answers that question. If you like horror you’re going to love this book I did I thought it was great and having Greg Patmore read it can’t hurt. I love his voice especially in a horror. A great scare

Didn't see that coming

I love the story, the time period the book was set in [the 70s], will definitely listen to this one again. The story had a surprising ending and the narrator did a great job.
