This is a story of murder and duplicity during the Roman civil war featuring Gordianus the Finder. Caesar and his troops have crossed the Rubicon and are marching on Rome. Pompey his rival, is preparing to flee south with his loyal troops, leaving the city unguarded and ungoverned. Before Pompey leaves Rome, however, his cousin and protege is found dead, garotted in Gordianus' garden. Enraged, Pompey demands that Gordianus discover and name the killer. With one son a trusted aide of Caesar and his son-in-law held as hostage by Pompey, Gordianus faces a personal crisis: he must learn the secrets of the dead man and reveal a murderer to protect his own family from being crushed by the opposing forces that will forever change the Roman world.

Reviews

The ending springs a genuine surprise on the reader. * The Independent * A compelling (and sometimes very funny) story teller, with a striking talent for historical reconstruction. * Times Literary Supplement * The Saylor hallmarks are...meticulous recreation of Rome's grimy bustling streets...and a brilliantly drawn cast of minor characters. * The Sunday Times *
