Sista delen i rymdoperan om generationsskeppet Jacob's Ladder. Här når skeppet äntligen fram till en beboelig - och bebodd - planet. Invånarna är människor, men ändå så främmande att rymdresenärerna har mycket svårt att förstå sig på dem. Mötet hotar att urarta i en konflikt som kan innebära slutet för besättningen ombord på Jacob's Ladder.
   
   At last the generation ship Jacob's Ladder has arrived at its destination: the planet they have come to call Grail. But this habitable jewel just happens to be populated already: by humans who call their home Fortune. And they are wary of sharing Fortune-especially with people who have genetically engineered themselves to such an extent that it is a matter of debate whether they are even human anymore. To make matters worse, a shocking murder aboard the Jacob's Ladder has alerted Captain Perceval and the angel Nova that formidable enemies remain hidden somewhere among the crew.
   On Grail - or Fortune, rather - Premier Danilaw views the approach of the Jacob's Ladder with dread. Behind the diplomatic niceties of first-contact protocol, he knows that the deadly game being played is likely to erupt into full-blown war - even civil war. For as he strives to chart a peaceful and prosperous path forward for his people, internal threats emerge to take control by any means necessary.
