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.

"If you're in the mood for an ultimate Halloween-theme story then Hallows Eve will deliver you the goods." (Buried.com)
"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.
