Another sinister tale of mystery and suspense from the pen of that 'Master of Mystery', Glenn Stuart. With a background set amongst narrow, dark twisting streets covered in grime and decay, this horror story for young adults is a grisly tale based on the murder of two young boys which took place back in the late eighteen sixties. In those days - when poverty was rife with many families having to share dank dark accommodation, children as young as five or six forced out to work to keep hunger at bay, and life for many a matter of merely existing from day to day - danger and death lurked around every corner. Amongst this squalor, The Pawnbroker plied his trade; a man of evil temper who craved that one item which would bring him the comforts and luxury he so coveted. Switching to the present-day, two teenage boys find themselves exploring an old abandoned Tudor-style house within which is an eerie atmosphere which fills the boys with a growing sense of dread. Something sinister is in the air as the past begins to haunt them ...and so begins this tale of dark, malevolent, unnatural forces, which is guaranteed to keep the reader on the edge of their seat until the very last page. "The Pawnbroker" follows "Cold Hell in Darley Dene"; "The Accursed Dawn"; "The Well of Constant Despair"; and we are pleased to learn that the Author's next book, "Don Luis", is soon to be published.
