Description - The Murrian by Robert Dodds
Ben and Clare are staying with Aunt Gwen in Antmouth for the summer. They've been told the coast there is haunted by the ghosts of smugglers, but they are soon much more alarmed by the living residents of the village. There's the tall thin fellow in charge of the Insect Zoo, who acts like the worst kind of mad scientist. And then there's all the fish-eyed golfers who seem to be spying on them. Why do their golf balls seem to get everywhere - even into the cottage itself? And what is going on in the big Bosswood estate at the top of the hill, where a mysterious dome rises above the trees? Most frightening of all, why do people from the village keep vanishing? Once again, in this fourth Ben and Claire Swift thriller, the thin curtain of normality is ripped aside, plunging the reader into a bizarre world of hidden terror!
