He befriends Greek merchant Orneus and the Germanic warriors of Quadi. Together, they find a way to provoke open conflict with the expansionist Roman legions. While Peter is lost in time, Nazi fanatic Eduard Beck manipulates his trial to stay out of prison. He has scores to settle. He knows the Time Gate exists and will stop at nothing to find it and go back in time to join Hitler to establish a new Third Reich, destroying anyone or anything that gets in his way.
