A supernatural mystery based on the Clydebank Blitz and written for 9 - 12 year old readers. Pete's whole family has suddenly and unexpectedly moved from London to Scotland and in their new house he hears unexplained voices. He meets new friends in the abandoned air raid shelter in the back garden but gradually realises that all is not as it seems. Something very strange happens and through a series of supernatural events he gains real experience of the panic, tragedy and loss of the 1941 Blitz. Finally, a mystery of more than fifty years is solved by his courage and resourcefulness. The story is told with realism, poignancy and humour and Catherine Forde, in this her first novel, shows a great capacity for following and understanding the emotions and thoughts of young minds.
