Heads Will Roll
It is 1799, the eve of a new century. In New York City, young Constable Ichabod Crane is eager to use the latest scientific methods to solve the most brutal of crimes.
But nothing can prepare him for the shocking murders that take him far from the city’s cobblestones to the eerie town of Sleepy Hollow.
Awaiting him are three beheaded bodies, all apparently victims of a legendary Headless Horseman returned from the grave to exact revenge. Ichabod uses reason to confront the horrors of the unexplained, but the reality of Sleepy Hollow’s waking nightmare is always before him. A reality where witches cast spells in the darkened woods . . . trees bleed . . . and a demon rides at night.
