An all-new novella from the author of The Safety of Unknown Cities and Dancing With Demons!
When Ruth Abbott, a young woman running away from a failed love affair, finds employment on a wagon train heading west to Santa Fe, she could never imagine she'd soon be embroiled in a horrific web of disappeared children, witchcraft, and satanic rites-nothing a simple girl from Chicago could possibly have any connection to. Or does she? The old Mexican curandero she visits in an attempt to get help advises her to flee immediately and hints that, like others on the wagon train, Ruth has dark secrets of her own that may attract evil.
"But what would a witch want with me?" the young woman asks.
That, of course, is the question.
