By the best-selling author of the Alex Rider series

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

It’s Hallowe’en, but the living dead on the Night Bus aren’t trick or treaters. And when Nick and Jeremy get on board, it looks like the bus is not going to be taking them home . . . When his dad picks up a hitchhiker, Jacob find himself in a life or death situation. Could the hitcher be on the run from the nearby Maximum Security Unit? For sure, someone in the car has a deadly secret . . .

Who is the man with the damaged yellow face in the middle photo in Peter’s strip of passport photos – because it can’t be him, can it? Is is a ghost, or something more sinister?
