Weevil and Gray realize that they have to keep Kitty safe. They know the killer is close, but they cannot discover his identity. At the same time, Gray’s attorney cousin, Rylan, has met Kitty’s teacher, Lina, hoping for a second chance at love.At midnight, a star burns atop Aldape Ridge. Tiger moth pupae sleep in Kitty’s family garage, waiting for spring. In a small stable, Gray sings his heart out. In the middle of a nasty divorce case, Rylan and Lina stand up for a small boy with uncaring parents. On Halloween night, the Headless Horseman rides again. And in the canyon to the north, a killer in a pickup waits for the right moment to strike.
