    Sped right through it. It seemed shorter than some of the others

    Sped right through it. It seemed shorter than some of the others in the series. Saylor's books flesh out life in the ancient city and bring historic events into perspective. I've learned more history of the first century BCE from Saylor than I ever did in a textbook. Having been to Rome, I can somewhat picture places and I often refer to an old map of Rome in the second century CE from National Geographic.

    I love the fictional characters, especially Rome's favorite PI and the interplay with the real people. Took this one on vacation and didn't put it down for two days.

    Historical fiction at its best

    I loved it! I read voraciously, but I just discovered Saylor. His word pictures of ancient Rome are wonderful.

    A real 'Twist at the End'!

    When Pompey's favorite cousin is killed in Gordianus' garden Gordianus must find the killer or lose his son in law to Pompey's army. When I read this book I couldn't figure out who it was until the end. So there's one word to describe saylor's novel 'addictive'

    Old age isn't all it's cracked up to be, but neither is youth.

    Poor Gordianus, he has to contend with turmoil and upheaval, and old age. One has to hand it to him, though. Once again, he manages to fend off the collapse of the Republic and avoid destruction at the hands of the powerful. Steven Saylor manages the Shakespearean feat of personalising a public tragedy. Gordianus and Meto's difficulties make Caesar and Pompey's power struggle a meaningful, immediate catastrophe. Neither Saylor nor Gordianus take sides and give us the Titans warts and all. This series never fails to surprise and challenge our assumptions of the mystery genre.
