A contemporary adventure story set in Ireland. Colm shares nothing in common with his cousin 'the Brute' and can't wait until their holiday together is at an end. However the strange events that occur during a night's stay in a eerie and almost deserted hotel in the countryside forces them to work together. Is the American granddaughter of the hotel owner, whom the Brute seems to have taken quite a liking to, with them or against them? Can they save Colm's parents from whomever it is that threatens them? This is an thoroughly entertaining and humorous tale aimed at the preteen reader.
