On the planet Eden, a terraformed paradise in the midst of a Hellenic Age one man hunts the supreme secret - that may be only a myth. He is Don Eel. Call him lover, dreamer, rebel, seer. Death-sentenced on his own world, rescued and led across wild and nomadic lands to the gleaming Citadel with its hidden ultramodern room - he alone can pass unscathed into the world of the blue-green skies and bustling spaceports, searching the galaxy for a treasure too close to see. He alone can unlock the mystery for which an ageless race lost their memories to save their lives.
