''Silently the figures came closer…I could feel Ally's grip tightening on my arm. And then I saw the reason why. Those people had no faces. Silent, shuffling, faceless people – how creepy was that?!' '
Wrongfully accused of theft, Patrick Lawlor is sent to a penal colony in Tasmania. More than one hundred and fifty years later, his son, Alby, sets out to revenge his father's name. But it isn't easy for a thirteen-year-old, especially when he's a ghost. Alby needs a friend, and a twenty-first century one at that. Enter Bron…a girl not afraid of a spot of adventure. But even the free-spirited Bron cannot forsee the terror and danger of what lies ahead as she and Alby set out to change the course of history.
