Then six fiery letters start to turn up as graffiti on city walls like a signature adjacent to the deaths: “MOLOCH,” the ancient god of sacrifice.

The two men couldn’t be more different — Plesman was a straightforward, physically imposing, happily married Calvinistic family man of simple descent, whereas Fokker came from a wealthy family, was small in stature, and was a notorious playboy and womanizer who wasn’t a fan of rules — and they didn’t like each other. But they couldn’t ignore one another: Plesman needed planes to keep KLM alive, and Fokker needed a big customer to sell his planes to.
Over the years their battles were fought in several countries, during exciting, historic air races, and with an extensive cast of larger-than-life characters on both sides of the feud. At a crossroads in their lives, the men are brought back together at the dawn of a new war, facing one big question: Can they work together to stop the war?

The ensuing media circus and public outcry to find her killer — a campaign steeped in discrimination and prejudice — greatly influenced the criminal investigation, which culminated in the arrest of Dolores Vázquez, a former partner of Wanninkhof’s mother. At the court trial, the jury found Vázquez guilty, despite there being no evidence linking her to the girl’s murder.
Then the lifeless body of another teen girl, Sonia Carabantes, was found in 2003. This time, the police caught the actual killer — found to be the same person who murdered Rocío Wanninkhof.
