Matt Freeman knew he was making a mistake. (from the first line)
As punishment for a crime he didn''t really commit, Matt was given a choice: go to jail or go live with an old woman named Mrs. Deverill in a remote town called Lesser Malling.

He should have chosen jail.

A strange and sinister plan is coming together made in Lesser Malling, with Matt at the center of it all. People who try to help him disappear . . . or die. It all ties to an evil place named Raven''s Gate - a place whose destiny is horrifyingly intertwined with Matt''s own.

Annotation:
After a badly bungled burglary, 14-year-old Matt Freeman is given one last chance in the form of foster care with Jayne Dereville, a sinister old woman with a sharp tongue. As soon as he arrives at her deserted farm, Matt begins to experience bizarre events, from terrifying hallucinations to cryptic warnings from townspeople. Unbeknownst to him, Matt is a key player in a nefarious plot centering on the foreboding Raven's Gate, a place of unimaginable wickedness. Matt sets out to free himself from the farm, but only finds himself becoming more deeply involved with every attempt at escape, clueless about his own chilling destiny. The first book in the Gatekeepers series, by the author of the bestselling Alex Rider series.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Many of the 20 chapters end in cliffhangers, wile the spectacular climax and surprising conclusion provide both a satisfying ending and a good set-up for the next in the series. Go. Visit. Have an exhilarating read." 06/01/2005

Booklist
"[T]he real-world setting gives this an extra frisson of horror, and Horowitz's vivid descriptions are not for the fainthearted. It's what's inside all the thrills, however, that makes the book so strong: characters that readers will care about and root for." 07/01/2005

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The first in The Gatekeepers series, this engrossing (and gory) fantasy will win fans from the get-go." 07/01/2005
