Product description

Grimshaw the demon has a chilling job – to make death-bed curses happen. And now a brand-new curse is being unleashed. It comes out of the grave of Grimshaw’s evil master, Lampwick the Robber: a curse that takes away loved ones, homes, lives, all that people hold dear. Grimshaw can’t believe his luck! It’s not long before his curse starts to be felt, bringing despair to the whole town – and then to all the world. There’s just one person who can stop it. A boy called Fish Jones, who can see demons. A boy whom Grimshaw must get rid of, at any cost!

    Kill Fish Jones is a very good book, so good i could not find any flaw so this review will be very boring!

    Kill Fish Jones is about a demon called Grimshaw. One day Grimshaw’s master sends him to kill a woman but in order to kill her he must first make her really misrable. Grimshaw sets out to kill her son Fish Jones but Fish is different, he can see demons. In this book you cant help liking the villain a lot more than the hero.

    A great book by Caro King, so buy it now i promise you will love it.
