A woman barely survives an attempt on her life by a militant fathers group who steal her two children. After the FBI fail to find any trace she is put in contact with a native American wonder worker who sends a Wendigo to track them down. No where near Masterton's best but solid B grade horror that sits well placed within his recent work. It's just a shame he's not quite as inspired as he used to be.

Graham Masterton is a master of his genre - he gives you chills and horror, great dialogue and a great story everytime.

Back Cover Blurb:
Lily Blake's first mistake was getting involved with dangerous forces she didn't understand. But she was desperate. Her children had been taken. The police were no help. And George Iron Walker claimed he could summon the Wendigo, a Native American spirit that can hunt anyone....anywhere....forever. She didn't think he could really do it.
But the man who took Lily's children has just been found - ripped to pieces. And Lily has made her second mistake. She has told George Iron Walker that she can't keep her part of the bargain. Now she has become the prey, hunted by a spirit no one can see, but which she knows is there. Chasing her. Tracking her. A spirit that will never rest until Lily is dead. ( )

I haven’t been this scared since I read Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot.

Lily Blake is desperate to find her kidnapped children after she was almost burned alive by intruders. After waiting several weeks for the FBI agents to find her children, Lily decides to find her children using a Native American spirit called the Wendigo which is part animal, part human. However, the spirit isn’t what she expected and her life becomes a terrifying ordeal even after she finds her children.

An excellent, terrifying ride! ( )
