Inhoud

When a man crashes his car into a petrol station just north of Arnette, he brings with him the foul corpses of his wife and daughter. He dies before he reaches the hospital, but it doesn't take long for the appalling plague which killed them to spread across America and the world. It is a long time before a few stunned survivors emerge, slowly and painfully, to build a new world. But now the dreams start. Dreams that foretell the coming of the dark man and the strenghthening of his empire. His worn-down boots walk the roads his red eyes pierce the night. Surely he's the apogee of evil, warlord of the charnel house, prince of torture and death. An acient woman struggles against the force of evil. But is it by chance that the work of the Trashcan Man, the pyromaniac, evens out the odds? Who is manipulating these people? What powers and forces are behind this horrifying Armageddon where ordinary people are caught in a titanic struggle between good and evil?
