    The award-winning creator of Alex Rider, and author of the bestselling Power of Five series, gives the horror genre a twist in this grisly collection of gruesome tales, presented in an exciting new, larger format. Stories of ultimate revenge from freshly-sold human meat and uncontrollable robots, to life-sucking MP3 players and reality TV with a deadly result are all told with dark humour and ghoulish relish. This is Anthony Horowitz at his most wicked.

    Old-fashioned cover look that belies the gruesome interior.

    Made even more fiendish by retro illustrations, chilling facts and a mischievous message from the author.

    Extra stories are available for download onto the handheld Nintendo DSi, for the interactive EA FLIPS range, as part of an innovative digital marketing campaign.

    Spooky trailer available online.

    Major nationwide press and publicity campaign.

    but ultimately saying out loud to yourself

    (and others) that youre good at something

    is far better than putting yourself down.

    sound less capable than you really are.
