Ghosts get stuck sometimes.
Franklin sees it as his duty to help them pass along from this world to the next.
His newest visitor? A scared white boy, wearing shorts, his legs scratched up, not proper funeral clothes.
Franklin knows that even if the police believed him, a black man talking about dead white boys just leads to more questions, more trouble.
Especially when everyone else thinks the boy is only missing...
Franklin Versus The Child Thief-the third novel in The Chronicles of Franklin-revisits rural Kentucky, Franklin's acquaintances as well as family, and the complications of both when twisted together with magic.
