The Far Time Incident, by Neve Maslakovic

"The novel is loosely based around a couple of murder mysteries, but they are really just an excuse to travel to the past. Julia is our first person narrator and she is an administrative assistant working in the time travel department of a university. Neve clearly knows the university environment, but it's a bit unfocused because, well, it's about time travel and who cares if Julia's office is in the Hypatia of Alexandria House. She and several others time travel to a destination where we get interesting glimpses into details of everyday life and experience (destination not revealed to avoid a spoiler). It's fun, I enjoyed it and it is a quick read." --Amazon Vine reviewer

When a professor’s time-travel lab is the scene of a deadly accident, the academic world and the future of St. Sunniva University get thrown into upheaval. As assistant to the dean of science, Julia Olsen is assigned to help Campus Security Chief Nate Kirkland examine this rare mishap…then make it quietly go away!

But when the investigation points toward murder, Julia and Chief Kirkland find themselves caught in a deadly cover-up, one that strands them in ancient Pompeii on the eve of the eruption of the world’s most infamous volcano. With the help of their companions—a Shakespearean scholar and two grad students—Julia and the chief must outwit history itself and expose the school’s saboteur before it's too late.

The Far Time Incident is a smart, richly inventive novel that skillfully weaves together mystery, history, and science to create a mesmerizing and addictive read.
