Yolanda Jamison went to Merida in Yucatan for a supposedly ordinary job. But from the rst, things did not seem just right. The huge casa de Suarezwas, dark and foreboding; the old Mayan chauffeur, Kin, was full of strange legends and prophecies of a new rise to glory of the long conquered Mayan people; and her old and proud pure Spanish employer, Senora Suarez, had some real or imaginary skeletons in her closet and some very real but contraband artifacts in her treasure room. And then there was the dashing Juan, guide to the ruins, who attered Yolanda with Latin charm, and the serious and aloof Paul, the American archaeologist who seemed perpetually annoyed at Yolanda's naivete. And, too, there was Maria, the maid, the girl who seemed so ignorant and yet who knew so much.Yolanda found herself being drawn more and more into the dark affairs of the Suarez family, as Kin's legends of the wild winds that got out of control with the coming of the Spaniards seemed to come true. And then, one horrifying night, the storm and the lightning showed the full reality behind the facade.
