This book has Gordianus involved in the conflict between Clodius and Milo, and is based heavily on the known facts of the incident of Clodius' death, and the subsequent fate of Milo. Saylor weaves the story around the facts, and involves Gordianus in unravelling the case, along with problems of his own.
From beginning to end, the story is gripping, involving people that he has met before, as well as new ones, who, no doubt, he will meet again in subsequent books.
If you are looking for gripping writing, based in a world that you can almost smell, then this series is for you, although to get the best from it, start at the beginning of the series!
