After 10 generations, the Reaper is coming to collect his due... The dark witch, Umaa, was raised for one purpose: to punish the white men for taking her people as slaves. Her revenge was terrible. Harperâs Town burned along with every living thing within its boundaries. The price was to be her soul, but she cheated death and even cheated the Devil. Impressed, Satan postponed his payment for 10 generations. In the modern era, Lita Harper is the ten-times descendent of Umaa. The circle is closing, and itâs time for the Reaper to collect her soul. Lita learns the shocking truth about the cursed patch of Washington D.C. that had once been Harperâs Town, and of the hooded figure carrying a scythe who can be seen patrolling the perimeter of the area known as... The Reaperâs Walk.
