Synopsis

Necropolis by Anthony Horowitz

This is the eagerly-awaited fourth book in this bestselling series. Hong Kong has been taken over by the Old Ones and has become Necropolis, city of the dead. Once in, there is no way out...Evil has been unleashed on the world and only five children - with special powers - can save it. Matt and the other three desperately need to find Scar, the final gatekeeper, who has been trapped in Hong Kong, where puddles of water turn into puddles of blood, where ghosts, demons and hideous creatures stalk the streets. Matt has no choice but to follow her. Now, both imprisoned, their only hope of survival is to reach a secret door in the Man Ho temple. But even if Scar can find her psychic power, it may already be too late.

Reviews

* There aren't many writers who in one book can bridge the gap between Enid Blyton, Ed McBain and JRR Tolkein, but it's the kind of challenge that the energetic Horowitz relishes. The Daily Telegraph * Horowitz is marvellous at getting inside the minds of disenfranchised marginalised teenage boys. The Times

Other TV work includes POIROT and the widely acclaimed mini-series COLLISION and INJUSTICE. He is also the author of a string of bestselling children's books, including the ALEX RIDER series which has sold 13 million copies worldwide.
