In 1999, an elite interdisciplinary team headed by a Nobel laureate gathers in California to carry out a ground-breaking time-travel experiment. While the rest of the world remains unaware, Julius Caesar is successfully transported from his last Ides of March to a specially-constructed covert facility. Four days of conversation with historians and Latin scholars are planned, to be followed by Caesar’s return to the moment from which he was extracted. But despite the team’s meticulous efforts to plan for all possible exigencies, an unscrupulous antiquities dealer who learns of Caesar’s visit disrupts the experiment with a kidnap attempt. Cassandra Fleury, the youngest member of the team, must summon strength she didn’t know she possessed to return Caesar to the Ides of March.
