Anna Dressed in Blood is by Kendare Blake. The first book in the Anna series. Cas is a ghost slayer, like his father before him he kills murderous ghosts. After his father is killed by a ghost he sought to slay, Cas and his mother travel the country tracking down ghosts that need to be killed. His travels bring him to Thunder Bay, Ontario to the home of Anna Korlov a girl murdered in 1958 and who has killed every person that has since set foot in her Victorian home, except Cas. Now Cas must find a way to kill Anna with help from local teens, but does he really want to kill her? A wonderfully creepy tale of teen angst. Although this book contains violence and profanity it is a great story, Stephen King for teens.
