This is Steven Saylor's second book in the Gordianus the Finder series. Set in first century B.C. Rome, it breathes life into very remote historical figures while weaving a great murder mystery. This book centers on Marcus Crassus, the richest man in Rome, and probably the richest man in the history of mankind. Unless you are a historian, like me, you probably never heard of him, but you did hear about the man he defeated---Spartacus. Both history buffs and mystery lovers will love this book and this series.

I am listing all the books in Steven Saylor's Rosa sub Roma series except the last one, which is on my wish list! This was a very enjoyable series...well written, educational (at least for me who previously had no interest in ancient Rome) and fun to see the progression of Gordianus the Finder's life.

You may want to order all of them because they're a fast read and, to me anyway, very addictive.
