The Djinn is a tidy little story and Masterton uses his skills to manipulate your imagination into seeing things a hundred times worse than he could ever describe (Although he is pretty damn good at it!) he just kind of, nudges (Perhaps I mean violently shoves?) you in the right direction :0) This was far better than the last one of his books.

Picking Harry Erskine from The Manitou Sand in the writing of the Djinn, is an example.

The repertoire of books written by Graham Masterton included historical sagas and fictional novels with disaster and thriller as themes. Not all his fictional writings were full-length ones; some were a series of short stories too. His versatility as a novelist beyond the genre of horror was doubly proven when his writing Night Warriors was published in 1986. Picking Harry Erskine from The Manitou Sand in the writing of the Djinn, is an example. He was awarded a Special Edgar by Mystery Writers of America for his horror novel Charnel House.

In movies, funerals are invariably held in a steady downpour, with black umbrellas and tears mingling with the rain. ly mingled with unsentimental sweat. The deceased was probably the most comfortable person there. He lay in an expensive casket of polished light oak with rather attractive shell-pattern handles, its lid laden with lilies and roses and orchids

Max's death had something to do with that old Arabian jar," Marjorie said. The wise men of the time said these were the voices of jinni, or djinns, and that hearing them, a traveler should hurry onward for the sake of his sanity and his life

Graham Masterton (born 16 January 1946 in Edinburgh) is a British horror author. This novel was adapted in 1978 for the film The Manitou.

AN ABANDONED CHILD A young girl has been found in a deserted cemetry. They are five ordinary people, forced to do battle on the most terrifying field imaginable - the landscape of nightmares. They are the Night Warriors and only they can defeat the evil that has invaded our world through our dreams.

Graham Masterton's first novel, T"he Manitou," was a bestseller and an instant classic and was made into a feature film. Masterton has won an Edgar Award and France's prestigious Prix Julia Verglanger. Several of his stories have been adapted for television. Masterton's more than one hundred novels include "Charnel House, The Chosen Child," and "Maiden Voyage" (a" New York Times" bestseller).

Harry Erskine returns, this time to battle something monstrous that's a little too closer to home than he'd like. His godfather, wealthy industrialist Max Greaves has died. And when he realizes how drastically life at the old household he used to frequent in his childhood has changed and how much the man he thought he knew had changed... he begins to investigate further. He'll soon wish he hadn't.

Joined by the beautiful but mysterious Anna Modena, Erskine uncovers the secret behind an old Persian jar that his godfather has kept in a special room on his estate. What role does it have to play in Max Greaves's death? And what connection does it have to the legend of Ali Babah? Just who or what was the 'Forty Thieves'?

Some legends are far more creepier and twisted than you'd ever think possible.

A really well-done horror story that relies on it's building of atmosphere to create tension and suspense. Things just get more and more chaotic as the story progresses without relying on offing it's cast every chapter or so. By the time things reach their fiery climax, you've long become hooked.

The only issue I have with this is that there's very little connection to the previous story 'The Manitou' besides the fact that Harry Erskine is in it.You'd think his harrowing experiences with the dreaded Misquemacus would play a role in how he acts in this... but it doesn't seem to.
In this early Graham Masterton novel, the character Harry Erskine, who is featured in the entire "Manitou" series, is given the opportunity to face a supernatural force other than Misquamacus, the angry and obsessed Native American spirit. Here he faces an Arabian mythological force.

The "Djinn" itself is not the most well-developed villain I've seen in a Masterton novel, but he (it?) is kind of a "McGuffin" (to borrow a Hitchcock term) here. The Djinn's purpose is to give the characters a reason to interact and tell us background stories.

I enjoyed this book as a departure from the "Manitou" series -- in which the entire U.S. was endangered by catastrophes again and again. Here all the action essentially takes place in and around one house.

I recommend this to all fans of the "Manitou" series or Graham Masterton, and I believe it would make a nice introduction to Masterton for those new to him, as well.
This was an awesome book. It was pretty scary with a minimum of violence. Well worth the read . I hope that I can continue to find these classics from Graham Masterton. I was fully creeped out , I could not put the book down. I highly recommend this book to all fan's of modern horror!!!!
Masterton has some great concepts, but he's a little hit and miss with the actual storytelling.
This author never fails to disappoint. The main character, Harry Erskine has been used in several novels by this author with great success. The plot and storyline are excellent and the interaction between the characters is at times brimming with action or comical situations. There are plots and sub-plots and twists and turns in this novel. The author makes excellent use of ancient middle eastern folk lore and history to weave this story together. An enjoyable read.
New look at the forty thieves of Ali babah, as an evil genie rather than forty horsemen. for anyone who wants a twist on the old story I recommend this one.
I give 5 stars as long as the item is in great condition or the condition expexcted anyway and as long as it shows up like it should. I'd buy again.
scarey and so much fun to read.. couldnt put it down and it should be a movie'' right there with the Manitou
