Spooked is the seventeenth novel in this extremely popular series featuring Special Agent Emma Jacks EJ12 and her Shine Stars team. This exciting adventure takes place amongst the English landscape with haunted castles, stolen treasure and scary night missions for the girls. Emma Jacks and her friends Hannah and Isi farewell their friend Elle and fellow Shine Academy spy who is off to live in England with her family, however they soon met up on again.
At the stroke of midnight in different castles all over England, centuries-old precious coins have been stolen. The Shine Stars team need all their specialised skills to foil the biggest SHADOW plot so far. Emma is called upon to overcome her fears and confidently lead her team in this frightening night mission.
Susannah McFarlane's EJ12 series books are keenly anticipated and this novel once again delivers the fast-past spy story the reader loves. Emma's resilience against the enemy and the team's resolve to work out the ghostly problems make this an exciting addition to the series.
