An emir eager to exercise a devious plan sets his sights on Singapore. If he has his way, the small nation in Southeast Asia will disappear from the map.
Dangerous friends join the emir: a Russian physicist and a suicide bomber, Inaya Izz Din, whom both are key players in his plan. When the time comes, they will be ready.
The plot begins with packets of white powder that are mailed to nine foreign services in Singapore. The contents are mainly harmless, but chaos ensues, and the government's attention is diverted at a crucial time.
Meanwhile, Evelyn Lee, a semi-paralyzed woman, finds her life spiraling out of control. But when she has a vision of the Archangel Gabriel and then meets Inaya, her life changes dramatically. What she does not know is that she will play a critical role in the events that are about to unfold.
As Evelyn tries to make sense of what is happening, the authorities search frantically for the terrorists. If they fail to unravel the plot, Singapore will be destroyed in A Twinkle in the Sky.
