The Ghosts of Moonlight Creek

Just this once, Joe would like a spook-free holiday. He should be so lucky.

When Anastasia’s movie director father invites Joe and the gang to hang out with the stars on location near Queenstown, they soon discover there’s more than one reason why the old gold-mining settlement of Moonlight is known as a ghost town.

Who is the mysterious Shadow Man causing bother for the crew, and what is the meaning of the signs that appear in the dust of the old ruins?

As Joe is drawn into another ghostly mystery, he wonders if this time, it’s not a coincidence.
