In the year 48 B.C., Rome is in the midst of Civil War. As Pompey and Caesar fight for control of the Republic, Rome becomes a hotbed of intrigue, driven by espionage, greed and betrayals.  A beautiful young seeress staggers across the Roman marketplace and dies in the arms of Gordianus the Finder. Possibly mad and claiming no memory of her past, Cassandra— like her Trojan namesake—was reputed to have the gift of prophecy, a gift many in Rome would pay for handsomely...or resort to murder.
