Twelve year-old Gabriel 'Gabe' Reilich thinks he's cursed after collapsing when his name comes out of a Ouija board game played with mates indicating him as marked for death. Dr. Robert Chase cleverly finds out about the boy's secret society's abandoned meeting place and suspicious substances there. Gabe's scary mix of suddenly appearing symptoms suggest anthrax and a rare, infectious tropical disease. Chase refuses to have any personal contact with his father, rheumatologist Rowan Chase, a world authority on auto-immune diseases, who suddenly turns up and joins the diagnostic joust. Yet House takes a stubborn interest in Rowan's reason to visit his estranged son now, as well as in Gabe's admired, separated father Jeffrey Reilich's past... Written by
