All Saint's Audio--Pages 1-14 (episode 1)
Louisiana on an exchange program. Dat is reflecting on his failed invocation at the Black Pot Festival earlier that day, when a disturbance in the cemetery behind the church puts him on high alert. He can't believe what he sees--someone dressed as the Grim Reaper squared off in a fight against blond girl in a nun's tunic. The Reaper is Butch McClaren, the abusive ex-boyfriend of the hero of the story, Constance Miller. You'll meet Constance in the next installment--and you won't be disappointed. Trust me.
