A second deliciously spooky paranormal mystery for Allie's Ghost Hunters to solve, set during a school camp at Hill End, where Allie and her friends try to sort the real ghosts from the fakes.

Who is haunting the cabin?

After Eglantine vanished, I thought I was through with ghosts. Then I went on a school excursion to Hill End and found myself investigating a whole bunch of them. First there was the ghost of Granny Evans, pacing around the museum. And Eustace Harrow smashing things up in Taylor's Cottage. But when two of my classmates disappeared, I realised things were about to get serious .

Full of suspense, mystery and humour, the books in this series follow Allie as she investigates a number of possibly paranormal events with a mix of logic, intelligence and teenage attitude.

'Cleverly creepy, well-written and well-researched, this is a delightful spine-tingler and a great read.' The Sunday Tasmanian (on Eglantine)

'With great, unexpected twists in the story. This is a very addictive book, and I recommend it to anyone who wants an original mystery story.' Ambrose, Year 8 (on Eloise)
