A black crumbling bridge is guarded by a fire-breathing demon. The bridge is invisible to most, but Josie can see things others cannot. She guides the Dark Man to the bridge. They see children being drawn accross it. They are slaves to the shadow masters. Can Dark Man fight this terrible evil and destroy the bridge of dark tears? Part of the incredible Dark Man phenomenon, this gritty and mysterious book will grip readers and pull them into the tense storyline. The sinister atmosphere and strong black-and-white illustrations will entice even the most reluctant of teen readers because the book doesn't patronise, and accompanies the dark tales with a 'grown-up' style. This is one of the higher level stories in the Dark Man series offering a degree of progression for more able readers.
