(YA) Thompson, Kate
The New Policeman. (F) Time seems to be spinning away faster and faster. J.J. Liddy promises his mother he will get her the birthday gift she truly wants—more time. J.J. is a gifted musician from a family with a music tradition. His grandfather was famous for his flute and fiddle music and, it was whispered, for killing a priest. On the land his family owns is an ancient fort with a souterrain or underground room. J.J discover that the souterrain contains the passage into the Land of the Fairies. Here J.J. finds that time from his world is leaking into the land of eternal youth causing havoc in both worlds. In J.J. worlds a new policeman in town doesn’t seem to quite fit in. Set in Ireland the story includes a collection of Irish folk music and touches upon Irish legends. For middle school and up. CLP
