Jace's return to Kansas is an instant reminder that there really is
no place like home. The tavern is still brimming with losers, practical
jokers, and motorcycle chicks. Even the town's only Goth is still
wearing eyeliner. But just as Jace is about to click her heels and
hightail out of there, she's roped into a brand-new case. Somebody is
possessed. And the bodies are piling up . . .
They call him the
Gallowsman. According to legend, he was sentenced to hang—though his
crimes still have not been specified. When he was strung up to die, his
spirit stuck around waiting for people to hang themselves . . . so he could
steal their bodies. Now, with the undead rising up and going on a
rampage, Jace must put her own neck on the line. Can she get the
Gallowsman to give up the ghost?
