In The Witching Hours, Anna and Max travel the world with their father, the Professor - but their real adventures take place in the dangerous underworld of dark fairies, where the children face sinister creatures and battle for their lives.

Stuck in a leaky beach house by the Australian seaside, all Anna wants is a holiday - but in the shadowy ghost town of Mermaid's Purse, something strange is going on. A famous explorer has gone missing, leaving behind their research about a long-lost shipwreck: a wreck that may be hiding a dark secret.

In the midst of a violent gale, Anna sets out to explore the town, sure that Max and the Professor will be safe indoors. But with a weird voice calling out to her from across the sea, and a network of cobwebbed tunnels running beneath her feet, Anna is about to learn that this ghost town might not be as empty as it seems ...

Beware what lies beneath.

Jack Henseleit was born on a winter evening in 1991, just after the stroke of midnight. When the weather is dark and stormy, he writes fairy tales - real fairy tales, where witches and goblins play tricks on unwary girls and boys. Not all of the tales have happy endings. The Mermaid Wreck is the fourth novel in his middle-grade horror series.
