Once I felt someone touch the back of my neck. It felt like the tip of an ice-cold finger. But when I turned to look there was nobody there.

Night falls, the moon rises, and fifteen-year-old Billy starts his first night as a prison guard. But this is no ordinary prison. There are haunted cells that can't be used, whispers and cries in the night...and the dreaded Witch Well. Billy is warned to stay away from the prisoner down in the Witch Well. But what prison could be so frightening? Billy is about to find out...

Praise of Joseph Delaney:

"Delaney's mastery of suspense will grip even reluctant readers with his dramatic, beautifully paced proses."--The Times(London)

"The Last Apprentice series continues to be one of the best written of the last several years."--Booklist

This is not more than 2 hours reading but it will grip you to finish it in one sitting. I wish this author will write more books in future

Billy’s first night as a prison guard is worse than a nightmare! The prison houses not only criminals but also the ghosts of executed prisoners, who haunt the halls and cells with whispers and ghastly shrieks. And there’s the prisoner down in the infamous Witch Well …. The Ghost Prison is a haunting tale that will be hard to put down at any time of year.
