Duane Johnson, a big, strapping Omaha truck driver, and his infant nephew Chad seemed to have a flu -- until they began bleeding inside and out and screaming in pain. Medical personnel's heroic efforts couldn't save them. And soon Duane's toddler daughter and Chad's young parents also lay deathly ill -- and no one knew why. Doctors frantically hunted for a mystery illness. Only a hard-nosed Omaha cop, Lt. Foster Burchard, started looking for a killer. Burchard's gut instincts told him this was homicide. While top researchers raced against time to identify a germ or a poison, Burchard was looking very closely into this all-American family. What he found was a nightmare turned real: a murder founded in Satanism, obsession, and a macabre mind...and a killer who nearly got away with it all.
