About this book
The sequel to the multi-award-winning "The New Policeman", once again weaving together Irish folklore, fairy magic and the spellbinding power of music and fiddle playing. JJ has grown up with a family of his own; his daughter Jenny spends a lot of time on the stone beacon on the mountainside, talking to the ghost who guards it. Her new novel, "Creature Of The Night" is published by Bodley Head this month. Ages: 12+.
Eleven-year-old Jenny forgets to go to school, can't bear to wear shoes, and spends days roaming the mountainside. It's up there that she meets the ghost. He is guarding a pile of rocks known as the beacon. But it is not people the ghost fears, and when the real enemy finally reveals itself, the future of the entire human race is threatened.
