This is a wonderful spine tingling and page turning adventure for all those pirate mad 9-12 year olds. It is masterfully plotted and blends pirate legend, a ghost story and supernatural mystery into an enormously satisfying adventure.


Ghost Ship by Dietlof Reiche

Twelve-year-old Vicki is facing another long, boring summer waitressing at her father’s seaside restaurant. But everything changes when the bay goes dry and a mysterious ship appears - an eighteenth-century square-rigger called the Storm Goddess.

With tourists swarming, a pushy reporter nosing around, and ghosts appearing on deck, it’s up to Vicki and her new friend Peter to find a way aboard the Storm Goddess to unlock her ancient secrets.


'Reiche has written an atmospheric and haunting tale with many twists and turns to keep the narrative flowing.'

'...the novel was engaging. Fans...will be intrigued.'
