Just because Wilkin's a crackhead doesn't mean the shadows aren't real.

They're real. And they've been haunting him since he was seven years old. Mostly he ignores them.

But when the ghost of his best friend from childhood shows up at the local motel, Wilkin can't ignore the call of friendship. And when his friend's killer buys the motel so he can destroy the remains, Wilkin can't ignore that, either.

Wilkin steals his friend's skull before the killer can destroy it and is plunged into a hot mess of a supernatural thrill ride.

A death-race pursuit of a child's skull. A spirit-whispering trucker hauling plush toys to Kansas. Five demonic farm-kids in a housing project. A Dodge City marshal who executes wayward ghosts. A nasty yellow jersey that takes the joy out of living. And a graveyard full of snitches.

It's enough to make you want to hit the crackpipe. All leading to a climax where staying alive is the least of Wilkin's worries.

Because when most of the people around you are spirits anyway, DEATH AIN'T BUT A WORD.
