Ply Gallant gets dangerously bored with his present job as tour guide in one of the largest and deepest caves in what used to be referred to as the North American continent.
Providence and logic drive his curiosity to an unexplored part of the cave where he discovers an old artifact. He believes to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, but is this thing magic? Jane Blythwood, retired from professional tennis, finds she is better at the magic than Ply is. The old sword helps solve a crime with a ten thousand dollar reward. Is it all good that the sword has been dug out from the bowels of history or is it revealing to each of us who we really are?
