Synopsis
"He was lying there in the darkness behind the tea chests in the dust and dirt. It was as if he'd been there forever. He was filthy and pale and dried out and I thought he was dead. I couldn't have been more wrong. I'd soon begin to see the truth about him, that there'd never been another creature like him in the world."

Michael and his family have moved house. It was going to be wonderful. They were due to arrive in time for the spring. But everything's dark, the place is a wreck, the garden's a wilderness. And now Michael's sister is dangerously ill, his parents are frantic and Doctor Death has come to call.

Michael feels helpless.

Then he steps into the crumbling garage...
What is this thing beneath the spiders' webs and dead flies?
A human being, or a strange kind of beast never seen before?

The only person Michael can confide in is Mina. Together, they bring the creature into the light, and Michael's world changes forever...
