When Seminole policeman Patwin Gunn's wife Nina became pregnant, it was the happiest day of his life. But joy turned to sorrow when doctors diagnosed the unborn babe with an incurable heart condition. What would you do to save your child’s life? Would you do anything? Gunn sets out on a seemingly hopeless quest tto find Imagog, a mythical Latin American deity.
Gunn's journey takes him to Honduras, a deadly encounter with bandits, and the discovery of a lost temple in the forest. Here, against all odds, Patwin contacts the mythical deity which agrees to save his wife and child on one condition: Gunn will become Imagog's avenging angel. All Gunn has to do is foment war, famine, pestilence and death. But Imagog is not what he seems. He is the representative of an alien race, with ulterior motives. The universe is not what it seems. And last, but not least, Patwin Gunn is not what he seems. In the tradition of Michael Moorcock and Doctor Strange, The Wraith will take you to place beyond space and time where the unbelievable becomes commonplace.
