ABOUT THIS BOOK

Davy Price, a boy with erratic telepathic powers, finds himself in touch with the mind of a violent criminal, with whom his irresponsible father is also somehow involved. Originally published in 1973, this thrilling tale is from the writer whom Philip Pullman calls "one of the real masters of children’s literature."
