Undead to the World

A Bloodhound Files novel from DD Barant



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?

EXCERPT

ONE


My name is Jace Valchek, and I'm pretty sure I'm going insane.
Either that, or everything I know is wrong. I'm not the woman I think I am, the place I live isn't what I thought it was, and everyone I know is an imposter....
