Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is Ancient Rome, and Gordianus the Finder has a knack for finding trouble. Stalking about the city's twisting trails looking for clues and finding bodies, Gordianus has had his share of misadventure with nobles and slaves alike. Known to many as the one man in the ancient world who can both keep a secret and uncover one, Gordianus has stories to tell.

Synopsis:

A delightful collection of stories about Gordianus The Finder, this book also includes a historical note about the time period and an extensive chronology of the events of Gordianus's life up until now, placing each of the novels and stories into their proper context. This is Steven Saylor at his finest, as he uncorks the secret history of Ancient Rome. Martin's Press.
