Comments & Further Information

A UK paperback edition in very good condition for its age.  Some age tanning to pages although the book remains eminently readable.  The covers are showing some signs of wear and there are reading creases to the spine.

This book was previously published in 1980 as “To Wake the Dead”.

SYNOPSIS:  “It all began with a little game – for children to amuse and frighten each other.  A séance in a dark, empty house.  And don’t tell the grown-ups.

But something unexpected happened that night – some awful evil awoke in the foul darkness.  Something each child sensed and fled from.  All but one of them…

Poor little Rose, shrieking with terror in that upstairs room, as some quivering form approached.  Poor little Rose, unspeakably invaded…  Now twenty years later, she has discovered unearthly powers she never possessed before, and has witnessed horrors no one else can see.

The gruesome presence that claimed her in childhood is ready now for the ultimate evil consummation.  And Rose will learn at last the monstrous truth about… THE PARASITE. ”
