Barely surviving a terrifying yachting accident, Mark Sayres finds himself in a remote area of the Olympic Peninsula coast in Washington State. He has come to look for his wife, Maggie, who has been troubled by a discovery at the archaeological site where she is working. After recovering at the home of Sandra Torrel, whose mysterious husband is burdened with a disturbing family secret, Mark learns of a succession of strange events in the little town of Neah Bay that seem connected with the nearby excavation. Why are archaeologists Paul Radwick and Ken Matsamura so secretive about what may have been unearthed? Can their discovery have something to do with an appalling incident of nearly a century ago . . . or with the Indian legend of Sisiutl, a mythical sea creature that captures souls of the dead? In this chilling novel, Philip Haldeman evokes the rugged seacoast, eerie rainforests, small-town confines, compelling history, and human interrelationships of a remote corner of the Pacific Northwest, all within a darkly atmospheric tale that brings to mind the work of Poe, Lovecraft, and Blackwood.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. Admirers of atmospheric, subtle horror will relish Haldeman's intelligent and chilling debut, which succeeds in evoking the spirit of H.P. Lovecraft without resorting to cheap imitation. California architect Mark Sayres, worried about the mental state of his wife, Maggie, who has been working on an archeological dig on a Washington State island, offers to serve as navigator on a small ship in exchange for transport to the dig. A powerful storm wrecks the ship just off the island, leaving Sayres the sole survivor. As he begins to recover from his ordeal, he's shocked to learn that Maggie has disappeared and that she's only the latest island resident to do so. Despite his rationalist bent, the architect is forced to consider the existence of the supernatural after he has visions of one of his lost shipmates, whose apparent resurrection may be tied to a primitive superstition centering on an evil sea deity. The author's vivid evocation of the bleakness and isolation of the remote Pacific Northwest will remind some of Algernon Blackwood's classic tale "The Wendigo."
