“Engrossing . . . Ironic and satisfying.”—“San Francisco Chronicle” “Saylor rivals Robert Graves in his knack for making the classical world come alive.”—“The Oregonian ”(Portland)“Saylor's fashionably inconclusive reading of the conspiracy throws both antagonists, Cicero and Catilina, into bold relief. The result is a spacious, provocative portrait of a fictional detective confronted with a historical mystery finally beyond his powers.”—“Kirkus Reviews”“Saylor has written a sweeping and marvelously evocative story, with page after page of authentic detail and meticulous descriptions of the people, places, and politics of early Rome . . . There's no doubt that history buffs will savor the splendid historical detail.”—“Booklist”"Saylor carefully plots this novel and accurately depicts Roman society; his attentive study of Roman history and culture is evident throughout. The characters are believable and well delineated."—“Library Journal”""“Saylor has written another gripping and entertaining historical whodunit. Shrewdly depicting deadly political maneuverings, this addictive mystery also displays the author's firm grasp of history and human character.”—“Publishers Weekly ”
