Colin Jackus doesn't want to be in the school play and is angry because he's been forced into it. But gradually he starts to realize that it's not just a play - the sinster story they are acting has its roots deep in cruel reality and despair. Strange things are happening among the cast of the play and misery is seeping through them. So when the leading actor starts to take on the evil personality of the character he's supposed to be playing, Jackus decides to delve deeper and try and stop the disaster that threatens.

Review:

Probably the best ghost story of my childhood . . . when I think back to my favourite books ever, this is one of them. (Amazon reviewer)

compulsive reading (Junior Bookshelf)

a thoroughly nightmarish and at the same time utterly convincing ghost story (Times Educational Supplement)

a well-wrought plot . . . vividly-drawn characters, and a unity of setting, oppressively enclosed. (Times Literary Supplement)
