Description

The Dark Man must seek the gold coins. The Old Man said they will help him in his search for the Golden Cup. As Josie sleeps, she shows Dark Man the way to the river. The savage current of the water fights him and ghostly creatures grab at him beneath the water. Can the Dark Man defeat the dark river and recover the coins?

Part of the incredible Dark Man phenomenon, this gritty and mysterious book will grip readers and pull them into the tense storyline. The sinister atmosphere and strong black-and-white illustrations will entice even the most reluctant of teen readers because the book doesn't patronise, and accompanies the dark tales with a 'grown-up' style. This is one of the higher level stories in the Dark Man series offering a degree of progression for more able readers.
