Monknash was once home to a band of smugglers, but it is now dull and boring. Except to Greg Morton, who’s absolutely terrified something unimaginable has happened to everyone in the village. He telephones his friend, Hobo, to ask for help.
When Hobo and Lucy arrive, they discover that something odd is definitely going on – but what? People seem joyless and dull, showing no emotions at all. Even Greg, who now insists that he was joking, seems very different.
Why are people walking toward the cliffs at the stroke of midnight? Who is the lady in the wheelchair? What are the villagers trying to protect in the caves? And why can't the local policeman see anything strange?
Can Lucy and Hobo take on an entire village by themselves?
