Maybe the dark shapes he has seen in the woods and canal aren't just his imagination. Could the attacks in Joe's town be linked to his dad's research at the university?

'Bound to be popular with.fans of the television series Primeval, this is a skilful, intelligent thriller.' The Times (UK)
'This really was a fantastic book.an eco-aware, action suspense thriller. It goes at about 500mph and doesn't stop until the last page.but the real kudos has to be reserved for the bad guys - the creatures. I really don't want to tell you too much about them, other than how terrifying I found them.' The Bookbag (UK)
