Where to buy it


There are mysterious explosions near the old abandoned houses in town. Is it science . . . or is it something strange and ghostly? Find out in the latest installment to the spooky chapter book series Spooky Sleuths.

Asim’s friend Max is in danger! Asim is sure some sort of supernatural being—a witch, maybe?—is after Max. Rokshar, the levelheaded one of the group, thinks the woman is a scientist using kids for her experiments! Either way, Max is in trouble, and it’s up to Asim and Rokshar to keep him safe.
But when they get close to finding answers, Asim and his friends are attacked by fireballs. Is science behind the flying fire? Or is it a witch from Guyanese folklore?
Find out . . . if you dare!

Don't miss the Spooky Sleuths series based on ghost stories from Guyana.
