A sweltering week in late August. Where better to enjoy the last days of summer than on the beautiful Bay of Naples? All along the coast, the Roman Empire's richest citizens are relaxing in their luxurious villa. The world's largest navy lies peacefully at anchor in Misenum. The tourists are spending their money in the seaside resorts of Baiae, Herculaneum and Pompeii. Only one man is worried. The engineer Marius Attilus Primus has just taken charge of the enormous aqueduct which brings fresh water to a quarter of a million people. But springs are failing for the first time in generations, his predecessor has disappeared, and now there is a crisis on the duct's sixty-mile main line - somewhere to the north of Pompeii, on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius.
