Sam is the author of ‘The Repossession’ and ‘The Hunting’ with Hodder Children’s Books.  Sam currently lives in windswept Lincolnshire but misses Vancouver, the mountains and the coffee bars, the setting for several of his YA novels.

 

The Repossession: 34 kids missing. Vanished without a trace.

Believing she is possessed, Genie Magee’s mother has imprisoned her all summer encouraged by the sinister Reverend Schneider. Beautiful Rian, love of her life, sets her free, and their escape washes them up at Marshall’s remote farmhouse downriver. But why are there newspaper clippings of the missing kids pinned to Marshall’s bathroom wall? And should they believe his stories about the experiments at the Fortress, an underground research station nearby?

Genie meets Denis. Missing two years now, but hasn’t grown an inch. Rian is haunted by Renée, who insists she’s not actually dead. Soon they discover the terrible truth about Reverend Schneider and worse, Genie is next … and Rian can’t do a thing to prevent it.

The Repossession is just the beginning.
