Red Sox fans suffered the "Curse of the Bambino." In Chicago, a goat's owner laid a hex on the Cubs. Buddy Cullen, a young journalism professor, stumbles upon something far worse than either of these. Something as old as mankind plagues the Cleveland Indians... and everyone else!
Cullen's investigation takes him into a dangerous chase after a demon, leading to a deadly showdown in the shadows.
