The Eyeball Collector

When his butterfly-collector father is swindled out of his entire livelihood, a vengeful Hector leaves the city of Urbs Umida in pursuit of a fiendish villain with a glass eye! The trail leads to Withypitts Hall, a forbidding Gothic mansion as warped as its inhabitants, who are full of sinister, secret schemes. Soon Hector finds himself embroiled in devilish deeds more poisonous than his worst imaginings. Yet every twist and turn in his adventures brings him closer to his revenge… A brilliantly macabre and blackly funny fantasy by the author of The Black Book of Secrets and The Bone Magician.

“Grabs at the reader with hooked talons” Eoin Colfer, author of “Artemis Fowl”
