From publisher blurb:
The Christmas spirit has descended upon Pinebox. It’s a time for celebration, a time for relaxation, and perhaps a time when the forces of darkness would give the world some gosh darned peace and quiet.
Unfortunately, this year the Christmas spirit is an actual spirit—and it doesn’t care if you’ve been naughty or nice. The spirit of the last man to be publicly lynched in Texas has risen, and he’s on the trail of a young Freshman at East Texas University.
Oh. And he looks like Santa Claus.
