"The Glittering Storm"
by Stephen Cole

Sarah Jane Smith and her friends investigate a mysterious clinic, in a thrilling new adventure read by Elisabeth Sladen.

When Sarah Jane disturbs a burglar in the night, she is surprised to find a middle-aged woman, her pockets stuffed with jewellery, demanding gold. The next day, she reads a newspaper story about a granny who broke into a jewellers, and then Maria reports that a woman has been stealing rings and necklaces from the girls’ changing room at school.

All the women had recently attended the Auriga Clinic, a private health centre specialising in treating muscular aches and pains. Is there a link between the clinic and the odd behaviour of its patients? Sarah Jane decides to find out, but she soon discovers that the clinic’s secret agenda is more sinister than she could ever have imagined...

"The Thirteenth Stone"
by Justin Richards

A stone circle spells danger for Sarah Jane Smith and friends, in a thrilling new adventure read by Elisabeth Sladen.

Sarah Jane is helping out on a school trip with Luke, Maria and Clyde’s class. On the way home, the group stop off at The Stone Whisperers, a dozen standing stones enclosed by a dome. Set apart from the circle is a thirteenth stone: the King Stone. Legend has it that this is an evil king who was captured in battle by twelve knights, and turned to stone. To keep him imprisoned, the knights too turned to stone, holding him forever in their power. Nice story, but it’s just a myth – isn’t it?

Luke finds himself strangely drawn to the King Stone. Over two metres high, and covered in moss, it glows with a strange, unearthly light. But when the secret of the stones is finally revealed, the school party’s enthusiasm turns to terror...
