I think 47North did an awesome job with it. The characters spinning back in time and into Vesuvius, the concentric circles... perfect. (On a side note, close readers of this blog might notice that we dropped the dash in "Far-Time". It makes the title a little less Chicago-Manual-of-Style correct, but crisper, we agreed all around.)
Here's the product description from the Amazon page:
When a professor’s time-travel lab is the scene of a deadly accident, the academic world and the future of St. Sunniva University get thrown into upheaval. 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.
The Far Time Incident is a smart, richly inventive novel that skillfully weaves together mystery, history, and science to create a mesmerizing and addictive read.
