Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Saylor’s scholarship is breathtaking and his writing enthralls.” Ruth Rendell, Sunday Times (London)
“Gordianus’ careful, thoughtful musings are infused with real pathos as he seeks out information about the lost adoptive son whom, he has been informed, is dead…Saylor has proven that he knows how to season a good plot with lively historical details, and this book is perhaps even more gratifying than previous installments.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“In this exemplary eighth installment, Saylor links the case at hand to his larger concerns, the ongoing domestic saga of Gordianus’ family and the fate of Rome, with matchless elegance.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Stellar…Saylor presents a vivid tableau of an ancient city under siege and an empire riven by internecine strife. Readers will impatiently long for the next book in what stands as one of today’s finest historical mystery series.” Publishers Weekly
“Brilliant evocations of ancient Rome, deft plotting, and wry characterization…Saylor’s presentation of military engineering, battle strategy, and political corruption is fascinating; his plotting is made more exciting by the reader’s awareness that the sieges and naval battle forming the backbone of this mystery actually happened. One of the best in a long-running and steadily more popular series.” Booklist
