The discovery of a new Gospel in 2095 has compelled the Vatican to reassess its views on the nature of God. The Alien Corps is formed to find the truth. Fifty years on, hope is fading.
Hickory Lace, sacked from the Corps after a failed mission to Aquarius 4, is surprised when Prefect Cortherien asks her to undertake a dangerous mission to the planet, Prosperine. There is a report that a mysterious extraterrestrial known as The Teacher is performing miracles.
Before Hickory and her team can complete their assignment, they discover a plot by the non-aligned planets to seize Prosperine’s priceless resources for faster-than-light travel.
Hickory must find a way to stop the aliens and at the same time determine what manner of being The Teacher is and what he represents.
