For untold ages a dark presence has shrouded the small town of Orangefield. In addition to the plentiful pumpkins that gave the town its name, Orangefield is home to the dreaded Lord of Death himself, Samhain. Despite rumors of his existence, and rare, brief sightings, Samhain has long been content to leave the local inhabitants alone. But that's about to change....
When a boy from the town disappears, detective Bill Grant is convinced Samhain is responsible. But even Grant cannot imagine the horrific extent of the Lord of Death's grand scheme. As what may prove to be the last Halloween approaches, the fate of the world will depend on the survival of a small group of people, pawns in a terrifying game of cosmic proportions.

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
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. Gene Blake does a wonderful job with narration of this and book 3.His character voices are dead on creepy! Orangefield used to be called Pumpkinfield in olden times.There are stories and sightings of the lord of death Samhain,but they are just stories until a boy goes missing.The police are looking but only 1 will believe and go further than anyone to solve this case.

I enjoyed the story and found myself investing more time to listening than I had planned because I want to know what would happen next. The narration was poorly done with horrible accents and mispronounced words. Thankfully, someone else handles the next book in the series, so I can continue to listen to the story.
