Can you imagine knowing something is there but you cannot see it? Well that is a creep factor in this good thriller by Graham Masterton. This was a buddy read and it was fun to talk with others about the main character.
When Lily, a single Mother's children are kidnapped, she makes some very rash decisions and promises. In turn she is lead into a world that is beyond her understanding and is noway prepared for. At one point Lily is driven to take drastic measures, which throw her and everyone who tries to help her into an impossible situation with grave, no way out consequences. The backstory of the Wendigo had an interesting twist which added depth to this ancient, mystical creature and the story.
A fast moving thriller that had good cadence until the end which, for me,turned a bit into more of a movie ending, but all in all a good book for October spook reads. Thanks Janie for introducing me to GM, I look forward to reading more of his books.
Suzy James was a good voice for Lily.

Well read, entertaining and tense. Good characters and not too much romance to bore you with.
