The civil wars that have consumed both Rome and Egypt reach their climax in the fabled city of Alexandria, capital of Eygpt. Giordanus will witness the death throes of the old world to come." "For years, the rival Roman generals Caesar and Pompey have engaged in a contest for world domination. Pompey, his foreces destroyed at the battle of Pharsalus in Greece, flees to Egypt, hoping to make a last desperate stand on the banks of the Nile. But Egypt is a treacherous land, torn apart by the murderous rivalry between the goddess-queen and her brother King Ptolemy. Caesar, too, is on his way to Egypt, where his historic encoutner with the goddess-queen will speak a love affair that reverberates down the centuries"." Into this atmosphere of intrigue and deception comes Gordianus the Finder, innocently seeking a cure for his wife, Bethesda, in the sacred waters of the Nile. But his plans go awry and he must take on an even more desperate pursuit - to prove the innocence of the son he once disowned, who stands accused of murder in the royal palace."" ;
