A vengeful Sioux spirit wreaks havoc in Minneapolis - When her children are kidnapped, in desperation Lily Blake seeks the services of a Sioux shaman, who summons up the Indian spirit, Wendigo, to find them.

Graham Masterton's first novel, T""he Manitou,"" was a bestseller and an instant classic and was made into a feature film. Masterton has won an Edgar Award and France's prestigious Prix Julia Verglanger. Several of his stories have been adapted for television.
Masterton's more than one hundred novels include ""Charnel House, The Chosen Child,"" and ""Maiden Voyage"" (a"" New York Times"" bestseller). He has written for adults, young adults, and children and edited several anthologies. Earlier in his career, Masterton edited men's magazines, including ""Penthouse,"" He has written a number nonfiction books on sex, including ""How to Drive Your Man Wild in Bed,"" which has sold more than three million copies.
Masterton and his wife, Wiescka, live in Ireland.
When masked men break into her house and make off with her two children, Minneapolis real-estate agent Lily Blake at first figures her ex-husband is behind it. But when the FBI is unable to find the children, or any evidence that the ex-husband is involved, Blake turns to a Native American private investigator, who in turn asks a shaman to conjure an Indian spirit, Wendigo, to help find the missing children, inadvertently unleashing a powerful force that will not stop until it gets what it wants. Masterton once again taps into ancient mythology and mines it for contemporary horror, although it must be said that this is not one of his better efforts: the story seems forced, the characters a bit awkward. Still, there are enough thrills and chills here to keep fans of Masterton's best work (say, Descendant, 2006) happy, if not overwhelmed. David Pitt
