Summary (IBList user synopsis):

A city sits alone and abandoned, still and beautiful, but devoid of all life on the second planet of an ordinary system. Jon Gaynor and Wade Harlan are searching for the remnants of a long lost expedition of religious purists who landed and then mysteriously dropped all contact soon after arrival.

What they find will not surprise them, once they are prepared to learn it, and the city has much to teach them. The city is perfect... a perfect environment for inquisitive humanoids.
