WARNING – This audiobook contains somes strong language

“When I was a boy there was this old man that used to live in my village. We’d seen him round about, swatting at things that weren’t there and yellin’ at the voices in his head. Us kids, we’d dare each other to go and poke him with a stick, or throw rocks at him. My old granny, she found out what we were doing and she wasn’t mad, she was afraid. Stay away, Samuel, she’d say. Stay away. That man have Duppies in his head.”

“What’s a Dobby?”

“Duppy, mon. It’s like a spirit that haunts a man, whispers in his ear. The good ones, they come to you in your dreams, tell you nice things. But the bad ones… they enter through a hole in a man’s heart and steal his soul. What you got left is a madman: bitter and hollow. I tell you, the Tall Man? He’s got some nasty Duppies haunting him.”

Connor Alasdair’s parents have never lied to him; they’ve always treated him like an adult and included him in family discussions. So why won’t they tell him about the strange red-haired man who keeps visiting their home? Why is his father lying about the monster in their back garden? And why are both parents so insistent that he stops asking questions?

Yesterday 1990s suburbia held no terror for a 15 year-old boy. Today Connor will discover the magic and horror hidden beneath the surface, and how his ordinary life holds the key to fulfilling an oath sworn fifty years before he was born.

Our audiobooks download as zipped files (due to their size and for your convenience). Once unzipped you will find all of the mp3 files for your audiobook named, and in correct file order.  Due to the way Apple has designed iOS, iPhones and iPads don’t recognise these zip files automatically (unlike Android devices).  So, if you buy one of our titles via your iPhone or iPad, there are two ways to find and listen to your files:

[1] Download for FREE iZip for iOS – then download the audiobook using the link provided either on the webpage or the email we sent you. After the file has downloaded click on the Open With option and choose iZip. The app will open and ask if you want it to unzip all the files, say yes. A minute or so later you will have a list of mp3 files in order, and you just need to tap on the one you want to play and it will start playing in the Audioplayer. You can easily play, pause, jump forward or back.

[2] Slightly easier – download the zip file to your PC or MAC, unzip it to a folder you know the location of (such as your Music or Documents folder), then use iTunes to transfer the files in the same way you would a music album.

We hope you enjoy your audiobook and come back for more soon!
