Who will believe 12-year-old Tristan's claim that alien life forms that look like white mice have been breeding in the neighborhood junk heap all winter? Intelligent and murderous, the "mice" are almost ready to take over unless Tristan and his friends can act on their own. Robert Swindells has spun yet another believable thriller with likable characters and an atmosphere of horror that, happily, does not depend on gore. Think mice can't take over a town? Jamie Glover persuades listeners to think again. His rich, deep voice and subtle characterizations enhance the story without compromising the believability of the characters. Immensely satisfying.
