In a rustic town in Washington State, a man's death upsets the quiet equilibrium of small-town life. A well-intentioned blacksmith performs a civic duty for the town, ridding it of a pernicious evil that has taken up residence along the canal, but the death of the predator allows a more ancient evil into the waters. The townsfolk find themselves caught a vortex of uncertainty and moral ambiguity as the investigators start to uncover hidden secrets long thought buried.
From the author the Tulsa World says "has patented a hard-edged folksy narrative that conceals within its intricate voice the imminence of the supernatural" comes The Hauntings of Hood Canal, a tale of the dark side of the quintessential American small town.
The Hauntings of Hood Canal is the fifth volume in the Cady Collection. It contains an introduction by Nathan Ballingrud, as well as two additional pieces: “Flying Home,” and “Welcome Sweet Springtime.”
