Kit is a twenty-five-year-old Yorkshire bus driver who isn't quite like the rest of us, as the old story goes. One day she hears a passenger playing a song-the Electric Hellfire Club's "Kiss the Goat"-a song she never knew existed outside the ghostly manifestations that have been haunting her lonely nights, complete with sounds, smell and sight.

"This unusual ghost story, with its heady mix of historical and pop culture sources, shows how a truly inspired writer can find an original new angle from which to present one of supernatural fiction's most familiar themes." -- Publishers Weekly
