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.

This is a first-person narrative of Gordianus the Finder (ancient Rome's answer to Kojak) and his attempts to solve the murder of Cassandra, a looney tunes prophetess and his erstwhile lover. Saylor is not lacking in scholarship as the story is sprinkled and seasoned with tasty tidbits of Roman history.

Of particular interest in this story is the inclusion and central role of many of the power players among the women of Rome, including the wife of Julius Caesar, Marc Anthony's wife, Marc Anthony's mistress, etc. reconstructed through what little documentation has survived the years and augmented by Saylor's vivid imagination.

There's never a dull moment in the life of entry-of-C.E. Roman private investigators.

If you love reading books Lindsey Davis mysteries. You wil enjoy reading Steve Saylor and his character "Gordianus the Finder". This is the 8th book in the series, but a great mystery read.
