It’s a fresh start for Dinah, Lloyd and Harvey. Their dad’s got a fantastic new job, and they’ve moved to a quiet village. The Demon Headmaster will never find them here! But why do all the villagers speak in the same robotic phrases? And what’s that weird buzzing sound coming from the mysterious Biogenetic Research Centre, with its scary security guards? When Dinah investigates, she finds herself caught in a terrifying experiment – all carefully planned by one person. This time, he’s determined that nobody will stand in his way…
