Turn on your torches and join Aveline Jones!

Aveline is determined to discover the truth behind her uncle's mysterious disappearance when she travels to his home with Mum and Aunt Lilian. After years of hoping Aveline's uncle would return, they have finally decided to sell his house - but Aveline and Harold have other plans.

Sneaking into her uncle's study, Aveline discovers he had been researching possible supernatural activity around an ancient burial mound - and linked this with the unexplained disappearances of other local villagers. Dark, magical forces are at work, and they'll do anything to remain hidden, as Aveline and Harold soon learn...

Join the world of Aveline Jones, where mysteries are solved, spirits are laid to rest, and everybody gets to bed on time. Perfect for adventurers aged 9+ and fans of Michelle Harrison and Jennifer Killick. 



One of the best middle grade series in a long time! I really adore the Aveline Jones series by Phil Hickes. They bring so much adventure and excitement, makes you want to get cosy in the autumn and read them all in one go.

If you haven't read any of these yet, then check out my review of The Haunting of Aveline Jones first.

The Vanishing of Aveline Jones continues on her adventures but discovers that her uncle has disappeared. Where has he gone? Why can't anybody find him? Is there something strange going on in the village?

This is the third book in the series and it does not disappoint. Crammed full of mystery and spooky vibes for all the family.
