What People are saying about this

Leonard Tourney
"A truly remarkable novel, a perfect blend of history and mystery fiction with a twisted streak in public places of Ancient Rome that's convincingly put forth as modern New York or Los Angeles. Steven Saylor takes a superior mystery to new levels of achievement with a story as intriguing as any I have read in recent years. It is gratifying to find a novelist who is not only a brilliant storyteller but also a polished stylist."
