The After-Room, Paperback / softback Book

The After-Room Paperback / softback


It's 1955, and Benjamin Burrows and Janie Scott are trying to live a safe, normal life in America.

It's not easy, when they have the power to prevent nuclear disaster, and sinister forces are circling.

Soon the advice of a mysterious, unscrupulous magician propels Janie and Benjamin into danger, and toward the land of the dead.

Meanwhile, their friend Jin Lo washes up on a remote island where an American spy is stationed, and finds herself on the trail of a deadly threat in China.

But she's on the other side of the world - how can Janie and Benjamin reach her?

A satisying conclusion full of enchantment and heart, with Ian Schoenherr's stunning illustrations throughout.
