Just your average boy-meets-girl, girl-kills-people story…

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.

So did his father before him, until his gruesome murder 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: move, 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, but now stained red and dripping 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.

And she, for whatever reason, spares his life.
