Product description

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. At the start of bestseller Saylor's stellar 10th novel in his Roma Sub Rosa series featuring Gordianus the Finder (after 2004's The Judgment of Caesar), Gordianus is at first reluctant to accept a commission from Julius Caesar's wife, Calpurnia, to discover which of the general's many enemies may be plotting her husband's assassination soon after his victory in the Roman civil war. When Calpurnia reveals that the first man she'd hired for the job, Hieronymous, was murdered, the sleuth agrees to help because Hieronymous was an old friend of his. The suspects in Hieronymous's death, who include such prominent figures of the period as Cleopatra and Marc Antony, may well be the ones seeking to kill Caesar. Since the action takes place two years before Caesar's actual death in 44 B.C., there's little suspense about the outcome, but Saylor ably rises to the challenge. The convincing backdrop of daily life in ancient Rome helps make this compelling whodunit a triumph. Author tour. (May)

Review

"May Steven Saylor’s Roman empire never fall! Writing in a spare, elegant style shorn of excess description, Saylor convincingly transports us into the ancient world..."
--USA Today on Roma

"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 on A Murder on the Appian Way

"Saylor puts his finger on the very essence of Roman history."
--Times Literary Supplement (London) on Roma

“A vivid and robust writer, Saylor invests his books with exquisite detail and powerful drama.” – The Philadelphia Inquirer on A Mist of Prophecies

"Superb. From the exceptional attention to historical detail to the development of character and plot, which is based on real history, it's a treat to read."
--The Globe and Mail (Toronto) on The Judgment of Caesar

"Builds character and emotion on a foundation of history. At each stage fiction is used not to alter fact but to illuminate it, humanize it and bring it to life." 
--Houston Chronicle on Roma
