To gauge the extent of the infestation, Katya needs to spend a few days at Nineveh, and her investigations there reveal little by way of animal interlopers, initially—she's told the beetles show up after a rain, and the weather's been dry—but in the meantime she makes some discoveries about the development, which appears to be disappearing.

      Historians consider the biblical account about Jonah's warning against Nineveh as a pious fiction, however, the Gospels refer to it as a real story (Lk ). The book of Jonah, despite its brevity, gives some verifiable information regarding Nineveh, a very old city, which disappeared completely after its destruction in BCE. The dimensions mentioned seem colossal, however they agree. The Book of Nahum consists of two parts: Chapters two and three describe the fall of Nineveh, which later took place in BC. Nineveh is compared to Thebes, the Egyptian city that Assyria itself had destroyed in BC. Nahum describes the siege and frenzied activity of Nineveh's troops as they try in vain to halt the invaders.
