Overview

Jenny and David Â? twins whose close connection makes them understand each other without words Â?also share a secret of being able to see things other people can't... When a local homeless tramp disappears from their street, they decide to look for him for as they suspect the old man is ill and in need of medical help. They find him in an abandoned cinema, which is squatted by the local vagabonds, and the old man is taken to hospital with a chest infection. Jenny and David feel good about their deed, but they soon realise that curing his body is not enough when the old man's soul is haunted by some disturbing happenings of the past.
Through the desolate wastelands of the city landscape, the Ghosthunter twins bravely follow mysterious apparitions of Leslie, May and Mrs Garland, who haunt old Sid giving him no rest. Will they be able to get to the bottom of the secret? Will they come through unscathed by this strange adventure?
In Deadly Games, a fantasy for children and young adults first published in 1996, Anthony Masters cleverly interweaves exciting supernatural adventures with difficult themes of homelessness and social marginalisation.

Meet the Author

Anthony Masters was renowned as an adult novelist, short story writer and biographer, but was best known for his fiction for young people.

Many of his novels carry deep insights into social problems, which he experienced over four decades by helping the socially excluded. He ran soup kitchens for drug addicts and campaigned for the civic rights of gypsies and other ethnic minorities. Masters is also known for his eclectic range of non-fiction titles, ranging from the biographies of such diverse personalities as the British secret service chief immortalized by Ian Fleming in his James Bond books (The Man Who Was M: the Life of Maxwell Knight).

His children's fiction included teenage novels and the ground breaking Weird World series of young adult horror, published by Bloomsbury. He also worked with children both in schools and at art festivals. Anthony Masters died in 2003.
