After 12 years, Corrie Phaeder is returning home to Orangefield - the last place in the world he wants to be. Orangefield is a town of nightmares, a town where the impossible and the horrific happen all too often, where ghosts rise screaming from their graves, and where trick-or-treating goblins have no need for scary costumes.
Something is waiting patiently for Corrie's homecoming. This Halloween, a messenger from a realm of shadows, with the body of a scarecrow and the head of a pumpkin, will usher Corrie into what might prove to be his last nightmare, a battle to the death with the ultimate darkness.

"Samhain, the scheming Lord of Death, is back for more Halloween mischief..." (Publishers Weekly)
This book was just not my thing. The good was the development of the atmosphere and Detective Grant. I feel that the plot was fairly uninspired and the characters were only saved from obscurity by the artistic talents of Narrator Jack.
Personally glad that this was a gift and not a wasted credit for me.
I am at that half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lol
This is a great series.This is the second in a series.I listened to the Audible version.I'm not sure why they changed narrators,but the difference is very noticeable . Jack Chekijian is a good narrator,but his female character voices sound like Mickey Mouse.It is hard to get past while listening.
In Orangefield there is a story that the king of the dead 'lives' there.SamHain works for him.
Corey left town years ago never expecting to go back,but he does.The town holds memories of demons and terror for him.Something is calling him back and he has to answer.
