It is the 5th century BC and Khares, a weary and stubborn historian from Alexander the Greats expedition to Persia, tries to find solace by traveling to the edge of the known world to write about the mysterious native Taurians. Twenty-five centuries later, archaeologists Phillip and his wife, Olga, return to an excavation at the now ruined Greek colony of Chersonesos. The sites tactical location in the past persists to the present day, as it is just across a small inlet from the secretive city of Sevastopol, home of the Russian and Ukrainian Black Sea fleets. Separated by more then 2500 years, two explorers unwittingly intersect as a mysterious murder causes war to erupt between two great nations, but then surprisingly leads to the prevention of another by its discovery. Which leaves only one question- just who is responsible?
