There is a new threat which is insidious and evil. It is a plague – and one of the first symptoms is the overpowering smell of oranges. Gabriel is a man who has this condition. To avoid passing it on to his beloved and those within the beauteous confines of Eden, he rides out to the city of Ruin in Turkey. There, the Citadel who have enjoyed centuries open their doors to nurse the sick. Many of their number have fallen to this plague and now it is time to fight this invisible enemy together.
At the same time Joe Shepherd and Benjamin Franklin (his real name) from the FBI are investigating the disappearance of two well-known and respected scientists who seek the heavens for answers to the universe.

Some people feel that man has angered his God by trying to find out the truth to life – but is the threat more human than celestial? It appears that all the dots join together in the city of Ruin where good and evil will have their day.
