Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead. So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father's mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn't expect anything outside of the ordinary: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.But she, for whatever reason, spares Cas's life.

he grease-slicked hair is a dead giveaway—no punintended.So is the loose and faded leather coat, though not asmuch that as the sideburns. And the way he keeps nod-ding and flicking his Zippo open and closed in rhythm with his head. He belongs in a chorus line of dancing Jetsand Sharks.Ten again, I have an eye for these things. I know whatto look for, because I’ve seen just about every variety of spook and specter you can imagine.Te hitchhiker haunts a stretch of winding North Car-olina road, bordered by unpainted split-rail fences and a whole lot of nothing. Unsuspecting drivers probably pick him up out of boredom, thinking he’s just some collegekid who reads too much Kerouac.“My gal, she’s waiting for me,” he says now in an excitedvoice, like he’s going to see her the minute we crest the nexthill. He taps the lighter hard on the dash, twice, and Iglance over to make sure he hasn’t left a ding in the panel.
