In an abandoned gothic library adorned with gargoyles and grotesques, a group of young people meet - apparently for choir practice. Soon however, it becomes apparent that singing is merely a facade. For Tarwater and Jonah want to track down the missing Morgan Bequest, some twenty thousand volumes donated to the university when the library closed. They want to reclaim the books or, if the university has destroyed them, expose those responsible. But how? The enigmatic Haphazard suggests they need an act of God...
