As assistant to the dean of science, Julia Olsen is assigned to help Campus Security Chief Nate Kirkland examine this rare mishap...then make it quietly go away!
But when the investigation points toward murder, Julia and Chief Kirkland find themselves caught in a deadly cover-up, one that strands them in ancient Pompeii on the eve of the eruption of the world's most infamous volcano. With the help of their companions--a Shakespearean scholar and two grad students--Julia and the chief must outwit history itself and expose the school's saboteur before it's too late.
