Jack has always had an affinity with the supernatural, people who lived long ago and whose spirits remain in this world. Following his father's death, he and his mother move to an isolated house. Instantly, Jack senses the presence of the previous owner. But he is soon aware of other spirits reaching out to claim him At the heart of the house is the Ghost Mother - long dead, but still mourning her daughter, for whose death she feels responsible - who has imprisoned four children, from different times and families. She has intercepted their passage from the living world to the afterlife and draws her strength by leeching their souls. Is it her intention that Jack meets the same fate? Or has she other plans for her latest resident?Jack's encounter with ghosts leads him to the terrifying Nightmare Passage - a kind of purgatory to which spirits are violently, viciously condemned. His survival depends on his own powers, his understanding of the Ghost Mother's guilt, his contact with her dead daughter, and the resolution of his own grief.'Breathe' is a compelling stand-alone novel, not for the faint-hearted but immensely rewarding for its psychological depth and the literally breathless action sequences, the hallmarks of Cliff's writing.

A true ghost story - the kind that lays its cold fingers on you, grips tight and doesn't let go even when the last page has been turned - Wonderfully spine-chilling. THE BOOKSELLER Such is McNish's skill that when you read of the young hero Jack's asthma attacks, you'll find your own breathing feels constricted. He evokes the same empathy when dealing with the ghosts who haunt Jack, taking us into the realms of inventiveness that are his trademark. Breathtaking. THE GUARDIAN Just the thing for adolescents in search of something engagingly horrible ... startling. THE INDEPENDENT Scary, disturbing and intense, a thoroughbred amongst haunted house tales. SFX Breathe is a brilliantly inventive ghost story, compellingly written. It is spine-chilling, disturbing and truly frightening. A real page turner. BOOKTRUST An astoundingly creative story, with some truly scary moments ... the remarkable way in which Mcnish develops the theme of breathing, including an acutely well-drawn representation of Jack's chronic asthma, and you find yourself with a multi-layered story that will genuinely unnerve the reader, in a way so many ghost stories fail to do. BOOKS FOR KEEPS A genuinely spooky ghost story that leaves you breathless. FIRST NEWS This is a tautly-written psychological thriller. A genuinely spooky story; the kind you read at arm's length, neck prickling and with the lights on. SCHOOL LIBRARY ASSOCIATION You shouldn't really read this before you go to sleep. THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY An intense supernatural story that haunts the reader. THE FUNDAY TIMES Jack's susceptibility to frightening asthma attacks matches the consumptive sufferings of a long dead girl - readers aged ten and above with be gripped and spooked. TIMES EDUCATIONAL SUPPLEMENT Nothing is as simple as it seems until the very last explosive climax. A brilliant winter warmer. INSIGHT A terrifyingly well-written and disturbing story - the ending is moving testament to the transforming power of love. UNDERCOVER If you're after a seriously spooky story, this is the one for you - a truly terrifying tale. TBK This title is pure, traditional ghost story. It sets out to chill and it does ... a suspenseful page-turner ... a spine-tingler. ACHUKA Gripping in its claustrophobic intensity ... An irresistable page-turner. CAROUSEL
