When the friary cat, Leo, showed up in the afterlife, Brother Jerome assumed that Leo, too, was dead. But Leo's real name is Quant, and he's a very special cat, for he's a quantum cat, and more.
A rockfall in the labyrinth at Knossos sets off a quantum leap, causing the Minotaur and Brother Jerome to switch places. The Minotaur is shocked to be catapulted from his home and dropped into a small wooden building; Jerome is terrified when he is flung out of the garden shed he had been pottering about in, and deposited in a maze of corridors. Both need help, and the quantum cat springs to the rescue, returning the Minotaur to his labyrinth and leading Jerome out of it. The Minotaur is happy to be home, but Jerome wants to explore the 'old' world he's now in. So, Quant takes him time-traveling, introducing him to his friends Androcles and the Sibyl of Cumae, pointing out to him King Minos climbing Mount Dicte to receive the laws from Zeus, and showing him St. Anthony of Egypt's astonishing journey across the desert to meet Paul the Hermit.
Meantime, back at the friary, the Guardian, Father Aidan, is in a spiritual desert. Having lost sight of the divine light, he struggles on through his dark night.
