When Joey changes school Shane becomes his new best friend, with a personality for every occasion and a strange sense of recklessness. Joey longs to get close to Geraldine, but she is scared to get involved with him while Shane is around. Because the Shane whom Joey encounters has little in common with the Shane whom Geraldine once knew, back when they explored the streets of Blackrock together, and befriended an old man who had returned home to die, and to let a dark secret die with him.
Is Geraldine right to suspect that Shane is weaving a net of evil around them? Who is this old man and what secret awaits Joey in a derelict house in Blackrock?
New Town Soul is a taut supernatural thriller for young adults set in a very real world – it is about the freedom of being young and the enslavement of being immortal.
