Nathan King has a home, business and two loyal friends, George and his housekeeper Sheila. His life changes once he sees a photo in the newspaper of a beautiful woman in the hospitalsemi-comatose and possibly suicidal. The photo is a blow to Nathans heart for she is the very image of his long-dead love, the Sumer High Priestess Nidaba.

Four thousand years ago, Nathan was Eannatum, the King of Lagash. When Nathan goes to the hospital, he discovers the woman is indeed Nidaba. With the help of George and Sheila, Nathan spirits the tormented Nidaba away to safety. And not a moment too soon, for an ancient enemy is deliberately stalking them and is ready to strike when they least expect it.
