CRYPT : The Gallows Curse

'new gen' - Great Fiction for Young Adults Books of the Month - <b>September</b> eBooks of the Month

LoveReading View on CRYPT : The Gallows Curse

September 2011 Book of the Month.

Adrenaline packed (and quite gory) new series for teenage readers who loved Cherub and Young Bond. Ghosts and Ghouls are real and dangerous and need to be tracked down and neutralised by a select group of teenagers with ESP (extra sensory perception) and a slew of cool gadgets.

CRYPT : The Gallows Curse Synopsis

Meet Jud Lester: Star agent with CRYPT, the Covert Response Youth Paranormal Team. When a crime is committed and the police are at a loss, CRYPT is called in to figure out whether something paranormal is at work. Jud is their star agent.

Jud, unwillingly paired with new recruit Bex, has just landed his biggest case yet ...people have been disappearing in mysterious circumstances while others are viciously attacked - yet there are no suspects and a complete lack of hard evidence. The only thing that links each attack is the fact that survivors all claim that the culprits were 17th century highwaymen. Can Jud and Bex work out what has caused the spirits of these dangerous men to return to the streets of London before they wreak more death and destruction?
