Product description

Review

''Gripping . . . A combination of Hitchcock-style suspense and vivid historical detail.'' --Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

''Saylor's scholarship is breathtaking and his writing enthralls.'' --Sunday Times (London)

''From the arrival of an articulate slave on the doorstep of sleuth Gordianus to the riveting re-creation of an actual oration by Cicero, Saylor's remarkable first novel takes the reader deep into the political, legal and family arenas of ancient Rome, providing a stirring blend of history and mystery, well seasoned with conspiracy, passion and intrigue . . . A story greatly enhanced by its vivid characters . . . A classic historical mystery, in every sense.'' --Publishers Weekly

''Saylor's evocation of anient Rome is vivid and realistic. Within its compelling story, one tours Roman life from bottom to top in what is both good history and good mystery . . . A novelist whose future work will be worth reading.'' --Austin Chronicle
