Présentation de l'éditeur

ROMAN BLOOD


A thrilling puzzle from the ancient world with real historical characters and based on a case in Cicero's Orations - Roman Blood is a perfect blend of mystery and history by a brilliant storyteller.


On an unseasonably warm spring morning in 80BC, Gordianus the Finder is summoned to the house of Cicero, a young advocate and orator preparing his first important case. His client is Umbrian landowner, Sextus Roscius, accused of the unforgivable: the murder of his own father.


Gordianus agrees to investigate the crime - in a society fire with deceit, betrayl and conspiracy, where neither citizen nor slave can be trusted to speak the truth. But even Gordianus is not prepared for the spectacularly dangerous fireworks that attend the resolution of this ugly, delicate case...



HOUSE OF THE VESTALS


Wonderfully entertaining mystery stories set in the world of the acclaimed ROMA SUB ROSA series. It is the Rome of the Late Republic, and Gordianus the Finder has a knack for finding trouble - and dead bodies. Known to many as the one man in the ancient world who can both keep a secret and uncover one, Gordianus lays bare some of his most intriguing adventures in this new volume in Steven Saylor's highly acclaimed mystery series. In 'Little Caesar and the Pirates', Gordianus must act as a go-between for kidnappers, but he begins to wonder who is really being held hostage; in 'The Alexandrian Cat', a mischievous girl and a tell-tale sneeze reveal an ingenious plot of murder and thievery; and in 'The House of the Vestals', blackmail goes horribly wrong and there is no one to take the blame. The result is an engrossing collection of finely wrought mystery tales with all the suspense and craft that are the trademark of Saylor's work.



A GLADIATOR DIES ONLY ONCE


Gordianus the Finder, famed detective of Ancient Rome, returns in a riveting of stories. Nine tales of murder and intrigue take him from the seamy streets of Rome to elegant villas on the Bay of Naples, from the spectacular backdrop of a chariot race to a domestic dispute with his Egyptian concubine Bethesda.


In the title story a beautiful Nubian actress begs Gordianus to solve an impossible problem: how can she have just seen her beloved brother in the market place when she had previously watched him die a gruesome death as a gladiator?



ARMS OF NEMESIS


South of Rome on the Gulf of Puteoli stands the splendid villa of Marcus Crassus, Rome's wealthiest citizen. When the estate overseer is murdered, Crasus concludes that the deed was done by two missing slaves, who have probably run off to join the Spartacus Slave Revolt. Unless they are found within five days, Crassus vows to massacre his remaining ninety-nine slaves.


To Gordianus the Finder falls the fateful task of resolving this riddle from Hades. In a house filled with secrets, the truth is slow to emerge and Gordianus realizes that the labyrinthine path he has chosen just may lead to his own destruction.

I am very interested in Roman history and I found these books an unusual blend of detective and historical genres, even more readable due to the use of actual persons and events in history. Gordianus is a very believable character and I couldn't stop reading. In short a great read!

I have only recently started reading Saylor's work, but after the first novel, I am keen to read more of the Roma sub Rosa series. The amount of historical scholarship which supports the settings and the action is very impressive and a very enjoyable way to receive a history lesson!

It is probably cheeky to offer comments about the omnibus edition after reading only the first novel (Roman Blood) and just beginning the second, but on a technical matter, I found that while reading Roman Blood, during part three (Justice) after the first chapter of the part, the Kindle repeated several chapters from late in the second part. As the omnibus edition does not navigate the omnibus edition down to the level of chapters (only the three parts), it was very confusing and time consuming to find my way forward to where the story recommenced. I found this very frustrating and annoying and would suggest the editors at Amazon fix it ASAP for future customers.

Having said that, I would like to finish on a hearty recommendation of the novel Roman Blood. It had me on the search engines looking for Cicero quotes. So I am very happy to recommend something which provokes further research - even if its just for fun!
