From the Inside Flap
In 88 B.C. it seems that all the world is on the verge of a vast and catastrophic war, from Rome and Greece to Egypt, where the young Gordianus - born and raised a Roman citizen - is living in the city of Alexandria. When not making ends meet by plying his trade of solving mysteries, he whiles away his time with his slave Bethesda, waiting for the world to regain its sanity. But on the day Gordianus turns twenty-two, Bethesda is kidnapped by brigands who mistake her for a rich man's mistress. If Gordianus is to save Bethesda, who has come to mean more to him than he ever suspected, he must find the kidnappers before they realize their mistake. Using all the skills he learned from his father, Gordianus must venture into the dangerous Nile Delta, track down the bandits, and somehow free the woman he loves.
As the streets of Alexandria descend into chaos, and the citizenry begin to riot with rumours of an impending invasion by King Ptolemy's brother, Gordianus finds himself in the midst of a very bold and dangerous plot - a raid to steal the legendary golden sarcophagus of Alexander the Great.
