An escaped madman is heading toward Chicago, leaving behind a trail of corpses. The victims are savagely torn apart - and partially eaten. Is the killer merely a cannibalistic psychopath - or a creature from the darkest pits of superstition?

When modern medicine teams with undead evil, only one man can stop it. Abraham Stroud is many things: archeologist, psychic, and detective.
