The planet Caprin is called a man-made utopia because of the products it offers: Clones (animals that look like humans), Dream Drug, and Fantasy Scenarios. Tourists who visit the planet by the millions are not aware of the machinations behind the fulfillment of their lusts and fantasies, nor do they care. But after Alethea Banding's father dies under suspicious circumstances, she and her hired hand, Ivan, discover a secret among the dodecs -- the planet's native insect -- that reveals corruption of the most brutal nature.
