The only person alive who can stop them is Annet, a young sorceress from the mountains of Peru, who has telepathically harnessed a portion of Hastur's vast power. She controls the elements of the air, possessing the magic of El Viento...The Wind.But the Hastur Group has enlisted the aid of the most dangerous mob of its day: the gangsters of Vincente DeMarco, New York's supreme underworld kingpin.
