James Conway is typical American rich man, he think everything can be solved by power of money.
He planed to construct a new building on the old grave of ancestor of the island.
But voodoo magician put a curse on him...

I like that kind of story, modern rich man try something(most of them ignore warning) and treated horribly.
This story is like that.
There is nothing new, but you can't stop reading.
I can recommend this book to everyone. ( )

First I don't know about Voodoo.
After I read this book I understand it.
But I want to know about it more.
This book is horoor and thriling.
The last is good so I recommend this book. ( )
