Product description


"Can a murder whose killers’ identities and motives are known in advance provide the basis for a gripping whodunit? Saylor answers that question with a definitive yes in his thrilling and moving (The Throne of Caesar)." ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"This elegant novel brings Saylor's much-loved Roma Sub Rosa series to a triumphant close, painting a vivid portrait of society, politics, and the arts during the Republic's dying days." ―The Sunday Express (UK)

"Saylor, a scholarly American with a fine eye for authentic detail and a flair for plotting murder...embroiders his tale with much fascinating ― and disturbing ― conjecture. If you are new to Saylor, you are in for a treat, because the politics and personal lives of the late Roman republic make compulsively entertaining reading." ―The Sunday Times (UK)

“Exciting and passionate, The Throne of Caesar paints a fresh picture of Rome on the Ides of March. Steven Saylor has written another page-turner of a mystery that, while wonderfully imaginative, is rooted in real events.” ―Barry Strauss, Cornell University, author of The Death of Caesar: the Story of History’s Most Famous Assassination

"The Throne of Caesar is a fitting capstone to one of the most important series in mystery fiction. As always, Gordianus the Finder proves to be a shrewd and compassionate observer of the most tumultuous events in Roman history." ―Gardner Dozois, editor of the New York Times bestselling Warriors

"A rip-roaring detective adventure for fans of Steven Saylor’s Roman intrepid hero Gordianus, who finds himself embedded in the inner circle of Julius Caesar himself, as destiny ticks." ―Adrienne Mayor, author of The Poison King and Amazons

"Steven Saylor's remarkable writing in The Throne of Caesar is so rich in realistic detail that ancient Rome literally unfolds before your eyes. If anyone wants to understand Rome at the end of the Republic, there's no better fictional narrative. Like Mary Renault's magic with words, historical fiction tinged by legend or myth intertwined with known facts and archaeological verity just could not be more elegantly written than here with Saylor's astonishing grasp of Roman life." ―Patrick Hunt, Ph. D., Stanford University, author of Hannibal

"Engrossing" ―The Wall Street Journal on The Triumph of Caesar

"Superb" ―The Globe and Mail (Toronto) on The Judgment of Caesar

"Compelling" ―USA Today on Wrath of the Furies

"Exquisite" ―The Philadelphia Enquirer on A Mist of Prophecies

“Saylor can be a compelling (and sometimes very funny) storyteller, with a striking talent for historical reconstruction…Half a century before imperial rule, Gordianus' Rome is a crumbling democracy; ideology is a dirty word; politicians struggle for naked power, not principles; hands are everywhere in the till; political debate is reduced to flashy spectacles and sound bites; only the forms of the democratic constitution still totter on. For all its complex oddities, Saylor is asking us to feel very much at home in Gordianus’ Rome.” ―Mary Beard, author of SPQR, in the Times Literary Supplement
