Timecatcher by Marie Louise Fitzpatrick

Published by Orion 2010

In the first in a series of strange discoveries, Jessie Minahan stumbles across the Dublin Button Factory in the grounds of the old mill. The factory is not what it seems but is in fact a front for a detective agency with a difference. An epicenter of powerful magic and strange characters lies within. The Timecatcher reveals the past every seven years issuing the bad with the good and must be controlled at all costs to protect the future of Dublin city and its inhabitants. This is where Jessie and her associates, both ghosts and human come in.

A novel for older readers Timecatcher is a new departure for this award-winning author. Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick’s picture books are multi-award winners and titles such as Izzy and Skunk, You Me and the Big Blue Sea and The Long March and more recently There are well known to parents and small children in Ireland and beyond.

“With a mix of extraordinary characters the plot advances in a vortex towards disaster. Timecatcher is a thoroughly entertaining read for age 11 to mid teens"
