Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Amelia comes home early one evening with a present for her new boyfriend: a small, wooden doll, with a tiny spear and needle sharp teeth. The doll comes with a warning. Do not remove the small gold chain around its neck, for this will unbind the spirit of the deadly Zuni hunter that lives within the cold wood.
