Overview

First published in 1991, this is the story of New York City. Friday night. Untouched by anything visible, Mrs Greenberg's furniture starts to slide across the room - and however hard she tries, she can't move it back.

Harry Erskine, self-taught fortune teller, agrees to investigate - but soon realises that Mrs Greenberg's moving furniture is just the beginning of a nightmare, for it is being drawn by the same inexorable force which drags us all to the grave.

City by city, America is on the brink of falling into the abyss - women and children, streets and buildings - one and all brought thundering and screaming into the dominion of the dead...

Editorial Reviews

Dennis Winters
Masterton's third outing with the Manitou provides another spine-tingling excursion into the supernatural universe, the "black infinite lake that lies beneath our feet." The series hero, small-time scam artist Harry Erskine, is again drawn into danger by the anger of American Indian spirits. From the East Coast to the West, the white man's world is being torn asunder by ghosts seeking revenge, and Harry, as well as his companions Karen, Papago Joe the shaman, and E. C. Dude, is forced to combat the vengeful spirits. The eerie manifestations of the Manitou continue to dismay and baffle until the final, authoritative, chilling climax.
Sunday Times The
Like all good horror stories, this moves from the familiar and credible to the fanciful and disturbing... the drama tense, the writing good.

I wanted to like this book more than I can tell you but I couldn't even finish it. I limped along for over half the book until I realized I didn't have to finish it. This was a very freeing epiphany and I dropped it like a bad habit. You can't blame all the evils of the world on one race. Attrocities have been committed by every color God made. You can't blame people living today for things people did who have been dead for ages. We are each responsible for our own actions, only our own actions. Aside from the racism this book was preachy and riddled with errors. The author would end a sentence and begin a new sentence with the first word capitalized and everything but not put a period in between. You had to figure out for youraelf that the sentence had ended. Over and over he did this. Really more often than not. This book is not scary just overly violent. A complete waste of money and time.

He slowly rewinds his memories of Nightclaw: happy, cheerful, and playful. He thinks of the time when Nightclaw sat in the medicine den, the burn rising to his stomach... then Darkwing shakes the devestating memory away. "Goodbye, Nightclaw," he whispers, his eyes starting to water.
