Amazon #1 Bestselling Ghost Story
A serial killer on the loose, two reporters in his sights, and a legendary ghost haunting the town...
How far would you go to catch a serial killer? For two local reporters, the cost may be their souls.
Lord Halloween, a vicious murderer who targeted Loudoun County, Va., twelve years ago, has returned. Quinn and Kate, two community journalists, race uncover his identity before a promised bloodbath on Halloween. But to stop him, they may unleash a far darker threat - and pay an unimaginable price.
“With the combination of an ancient Celtic myth and the legend of the Headless Horseman, Blackwell's story is a leave-the-light-on kind of page turner... If you like suspenseful thrillers, check out A Soul to Steal." (Indie Reader - Featured on USA Today Books)

Brian Gill gives voice to a great story
- T Flopstar
Excellent story - not what one expects at first.
Highly engaging. The slow transition from a semi-typical serial killer to a highly unusual supernatural thriller (based on Irish mythology and early American goth horror) worked very will surprisingly. I would not have thought so had someone cursorily told me about it, yet it does.
Gill is excellent in his performances of both of Backwell's novels. His accents are believable and he nails the nuanced vocal inflections that this text sometimes demands.
Quinn and Kate are both highly likable characters. Their goodness and edginess is a combination that works well for me.
