Overview
Rose Marshall died in 1952 in Buckley Township, Michigan, run off the road by a man named Bobby Cross a man who had sold his soul to live forever, and intended to use her death to pay the price of his immortality. Trouble was, he didn t ask Rose what she thought of the idea.
It s been more than sixty years since that night, and she s still sixteen, and she s still running.
They have names for her all over the country: the Girl in the Diner. The Phantom Prom Date. The Girl in the Green Silk Gown. Mostly she just goes by Rose, a hitchhiking ghost girl with her thumb out and her eyes fixed on the horizon, trying to outrace a man who never sleeps, never stops, and never gives up on the idea of claiming what s his. She s the angel of the overpass, she s the darling of the truck stops, and she s going to figure out a way to win her freedom. After all, it s not like it can kill her.
You can t kill what s already dead."

McGuire (the InCryptid series) brings empathy, complexity, and a shivering excitement to this well-developed campfire tale. Many stories have been told about a hitchhiker, a young woman—sometimes dressed in a prom dress or jeans and a T-shirt—who roams the highways in search of a ride. Rose Marshall is that hitcher, also known as the Ghost of Sparrow Hill Road. Rose has two purposes: one is helping the newly dead make the transition between states, and the other is hunting down Bobby Cross, the man who killed her in order to gain immortality. This is the story of her death, and her life. This mesmerizing tale had its beginnings in the short story “The Edge of Propinquity”; McGuire has smoothly turned it into a powerful blend of ghost story, love story, and murder mystery, wrapped in a perfectly neat package. Agent: Diana Fox, Fox Literary. (May)
