By the best-selling author of the Alex Rider series

Two spine-chilling short stories by Anthony Horowitz, a master-storyteller and the best-selling author of the Alex Rider series.

Jamie is pleased with the camera he finds at a car boot sale – that is until he realises everything he photographs breaks . . . or dies. Henry soon finds out that his new computer has a life of its own – and it’s not afraid to gamble with people’s lives.
