Do you believe in ghosts?
12 year-old Jake Shillingsworth’s life as a serving boy in Victorian London’s most notorious Inn, The Tattered Crow, is about to go from bad to worse. Shadows fall in the city and a cold, dreary Halloween evening draws in.
His dismal life in The Tattered Crow is about to turn even more torturous for Jake. Hidden eyes watch from empty rooms, and something unseen lurks in the cellar. Worse still is what has taken up residence in the attic above Jake’s squalid, little room: the thing that only moves in the dead of night, the thing that shuffles, scratches and scrapes across the floorboards.
As Jake returns from a mysterious errand across London for his odious master, he finds himself thrust into a terrifying adventure. Accosted by a strange old man, Jake hears a bone-chilling tale of a ghost from the past, black magic and bloody revenge, all in the place where he works and lives.
As the clock ticks towards Halloween, Jake is forced to confront the dark presence lurking in the shadows of The Tattered Crow, like a spider waiting in a ghostly web.
The Ghosts of the Tattered Crow is an eerie, short, dark story of ghost-hunting and magic set in darkest Victorian London, a tale sure to unsettle and bewitch readers of all ages.
