Connect the Scotts

While investigating Tabetha Scott’s 1860s death, October Schwartz and the Dead Kids discover that Sticksville, Ontario, served as an endpoint for the Underground Railroad, the secret network by which enslaved people escaped to free states and Canada. But October finds herself with more detective work than she can handle after some musically inclined pals are incriminated in a robbery at a school concert.

Fraudulent occult psychics, funeral home ambushes, band wars, the spooky Sticksville fairgrounds, and a history of prejudice all converge in a climactic conclusion that hints a secret society might be behind all manner of catastrophes in October Schwartz’s not-so-boring little town.
