Here we find Caesar at age 25 captured by pirates as he sails to the Island of Rhodes to study rhetoric with Apollonius Molon. In the encounter with Cutter -- the clever, bloodthirsty pirate -- and his band of assassins -- Caesar finds a new strength of purpose and an unexpected vehicle for him to hone his tactical skills, something he must develop if he is to equal or surpass his contemporaries. In eloquent and burnished prose, Vincent Panella's Caesar tells the story of his kidnapping and ransom -- and his solemn vow to avenge his forty days of captivity. In his final encounter with the wily pirate and his men, Caesar is challenged to become himself at last.
