Ghost of a Hanged Man
Audience: 4th Grade - 8th Grade
Twelve-year-old Ben, son of the town sheriff, is walking around with a curse on his head. In fact, his entire family is cursed. When murderer Jake Burnett was sentenced to hang, he warned the judge, the foreman of the jury, the deputy and the sheriff that he would come back and get them, and their families too. Now, a gypsy's prediction seems to be coming true- the coffins in the graveyard, including Jake's, are rising up out of the ground due to days of torrential rain. When the jury foreman turns up dead, everyone is convinced that Jake has returned to fulfill his curse. But, what can Ben do against a dead man?
