Cas has just picked up a hitchhiker.  But this is not your ordinary mendicant on the side of the road.  This hitchhiker haunts this particular stretch of road in North Carolina.  If you pick him up you will feel euphoria and a sense of calm.

For the first few miles…until you reach the bridge.  The bridge where the hitchhiker was killed years ago.  And now he wants revenge by killing the driver.  Something he has done over a dozen times.

But Cas is ready for him.  Because Cas is just like his dad.

Cas’ father was a ghost hunter.  He would kill those ghosts who brought harm to the living.

Until…someone or some thing killed him.

And now Cas has picked up his father’s weapons to continue the job.

Cas and his mother move from town to town for Cas to carry on the family tradition.  After the hitchhiker they move to a town called Thunder Bay to take on what will be Cas’ toughest challenge to date: Anna Dressed in Blood, a girl whose throat was cut she bled so much that her white dress turned completely red.  This will be his toughest fight yet and he might learn a whole lot about himself in the process.
