Product description

Review

"Saylor puts such great detail and tumultuous life into his scenes that the sensation of rubbing elbows with the ancients is quite uncanny." --The New York Times Book Review

"Saylor is skilled at spinning a tale out of unlikely historical sources . . . literate, humane, and dramatic." --The Boston Globe

"In Steven Saylor's lively imagination, Rome--both glorious and grimy--is revived." --Seattle Times

"Really excellent . . . an enthralling re-creation of time and place, fascinating storytelling." --Sir Derek Jacobi

"As always, Saylor sketches the real-life historical background with a masterly hand." --Kirkus Reviews

"Saylor meticulously resurrects ancient Rome, providing another irresistible installment in the continuing chronicles of Gordianus the Finder. . . . Gripping suspense and intrigue superbly supported by a wealth of accurate historical detail." --Booklist

"The suspense never lags as Saylor spins a sophisticated political thriller that also brings his readers up to speed on their Roman history." --Publishers Weekly
