Connor Jackson and the Memory Thieves
Nick B. Ponter
Connor Jackson lives a quiet life in Lower Molehampton. He lives in the house he was born and brought up in and, apart from his secretive job as a civil servant, he pretty much lives an ordinary life.
That is until one morning, when Connor is woken up by something, so he decides to investigate. He notices a massive molehill in the middle of his back garden; molehills have always been a feature in Lower Molehampton, but there appear to be more than ever now, and this one is huge. Upon closer inspection of this mountain molehill which has appeared during the night, Connor discovers a glass jar sitting in the centre of the mound. Thinking nothing more than this being a strange occurrence, Connor hides the jar away and forgets about it altogether. That is until a few months later when, late one evening, Connor is ambushed in his home by two sets of intruders. Attempting to flee, he is eventually captured. Fearing for his life and not knowing what these kidnappers want, Connor is thrown into a world which he never would have expected: into a world where he discovers the truth about life and death.
