Elisha Grey, scholar in numerous subjects & consulting detective in Atlantis during its Second Era, together with his flatmate Kiara Ptolmai -- daughter of Menos Ptolmai, Atlantean Ambassador to Chungkuo, investigate three crimes. In "The Bones in the Cornerstone" a building renovation to which Kiara Ptolmai and Kamay Pellay have been assigned by their professor in sacred geometry, Magnus Wren, contains the remains of a mother and daughter who may be Lemurian, which slowly sends part-Lemurian Pellay into a temporary psychosis requiring Kiara’s healing skills as well as Elisha Grey’s research abilities. "The Rebirth of the Crime Ridden Slum” results when constable Kaliska Saukenuk reports increased crimes in her neighborhood – the same one Kiara Ptolmai has been assigned to renovate as part of her architecture studies. The changes in the property toward revitalization flushes out a number of criminal activities and requires Saukenuk to become a sleuth along with Elisha Grey, Kiara Ptolmai, Ishmael Endymion -- flamboyant chemist head of Dark Ladder Laboratories -- Kamay Pellay, and demipantherine multimorph woman Bast. In "The Sabotaged Lift", an apparent accident resulting in the death of someone close to Kiara Ptolmai is quickly revealed to be a murder. She is the first witness. The question becomes: who was ultimately responsible?
