When George and Sikes investigate the murder of a Newcomer couple, the dead male turns out to be a Binnaum, one of a very exclusive monastic order of Tenctonese who facilitate the reproduction of their species. George asks Albert, himself a Binnaum who has renounced his vows, to identify the body. Shaken by the death of one of his brethren, Albert quits his job and returns to the order, also agreeing after much persuasion to be the Binnaum for the conception of the Franciscos’ next child. The murder weapon leads the two detectives to a dangerous psychopath who has been engaging in the systematic extermination of Binnaums in an attempt to do his part to control the Tenctonese population. But even though Sikes and George arrest the killer, another Binnaum is killed while the suspect is in custody. And this second killer is planning to kill Albert next.
