Back cover copy

Daniel X takes on the wildest threat the world has ever seen - someone whose craving for fame could destroy the planet!

All's quiet in the small town of Holliswood - but everything is not as perfect as it may seem. An evil is lurking, just out of sight, behind the screen.

From the darkest depths of imagination flickers the most terrifying enemy Daniel X is yet to face. A villain dead set on throwing the sleepy neighbourhood into chaos and documenting the destruction of every person in it, including Daniel, his friends, and his family.

Daniel X is the only person who can stop this devilish director. But, as the super-villain assembles an all-star team of his own creation, not even Daniel can imagine the enormity of his plans.

Praise for the Daniel X series:
