The Shadow of the Witchfinder - to be published in 2019
In the tenth book of the SHADOWS FROM THE PAST series, Max returns to the scene of his previous short story, Max's Hallowe'en Adventure.
The county of Essex wasn’t a safe place to be in the mid-seventeenth century, thanks to the presence of a certain Matthew Hopkins, otherwise known as the “Witchfinder General”.
The Lancelot twins, their talking cat Max, and friend Charlie, are about to discover just how unsafe it was. Journeying back in time to the year 1646, the young time-travellers are on a special rescue mission, but soon find themselves in great danger.
Disaster follows when the children are overheard conversing with Max and are accused of sorcery. Will they escape the clutches of the Witchfinder?
This is Max's second visit to the village of Mistley Thorn in Essex, but this time he is accompanied by Jemima, Joe and Charlie. The year is 1646, and the time-travelling foursome's mission is to defeat the Witchfinder and save his victims. Will they succeed or might this prove to be their most dangerous challenge yet?
