Publisher's Summary

From Martin Cruz Smith, the internationally best-selling author of Gorky Park, comes a reissue of Nightwing, the million-copy bestseller that Stephen King called “one of the best horror novels in the last 20 years.” 

As darkness gathers, the sky is filled with frantic motion and maddening murmurs. In an effort to end the world, an unhappy, aging Native American shaman invokes the Hopi god of death. Those around him remain skeptical, dismissing him as crazy old man. Then they discover his mutilated, bloody body and soon other similarly disfigured bodies begin to appear. Horses, sheep, cattle - no living thing is safe. But what is causing the horrible deaths? 

Deputy Sheriff Duran is called back to the reservation to investigate. Immediately, Duran recognizes the significance of the shaman’s spell and, with the help of two scientists, he works to combat the supernatural scourge - before there’s nothing left to save. 

Written “in the tradition of Stephen King” (Kirkus Reviews), Nightwing is part love triangle, part Native American case study, part supernatural thriller…and “genuinely horrifying” (The Washington Post Book World).

Brilliant AND gruesome!

This book does for vampire bats what “Jaws” did for white sharks. There is a great deal of important knowledge about bats in general, Native American culture, and the conflict between culture and business. It is very much worth reading.

Interesting and compelling

The story took some time to develop but played up as it progressed with sufficient action and intrigue. The beginning was a little borderline sci-fi to start but the story continues to draw paths and arcs together as it progresses.
