    About Soul Catcher


    Black Wolf, the ancient Shaman of the Caribou People and their last survivor, leaves his ancestral lands in Northwestern Canada to travel to Seattle, driven by a confusing vision that tells him of a final task he must perform and of a boy with no ears. But before he can perform his final quest, he is murdered by a gang of Seattle street-thugs. With his last breath, Black Wolf calls upon the spirit wind, Williwaw, to avenge his death and complete his mission. Now all of Seattle will have to pay for the desecration.

    Seattle and its environs are suddenly hit by a series of deadly gale-force winds, winds that strike from nowhere, causing massive death and destruction. Only Evan Baker, a thirteen-year-old deaf boy with a gift for second sight, understands that these winds are not some freak meteorological phenomenon. Only he knows that this wind is intelligent, that its attacks are just part of a scheme of revenge, and that, when its revenge is complete, the wind will be coming for him. Now, with a ragtag group of allies -- including Paul Judge, a Native American lawyer; Billy


    Mossman, a prize-winning journalist fallen on hard times; and Helen Anderson, a survivor of one of Williwaw's attacks -- Evan must find a way to defeat an all-powerful enemy that no one can see and few believe exists. And he must do it before time runs out and the next to die is himself.
