Kate cranked up the air conditioner and gazed out the car windows, trying to convince herself the trip wasn’t a waste of time. After a five-hour drive from Raleigh to the Outer Banks, she’d expected a more…haunting atmosphere. Patches of saltmarsh, interspersed with sinuous ribbons of water, shimmered under the burning North Carolina sun. You could see for miles. Hard to imagine a less ominous landscape or one less likely to host tales of the supernatural.
