Another compelling addition to the series
on 13 November 2014
This is another great read from Steven Saylor. Slightly different from many of the other books in the series, in that it's main plot is fairly simple, and very close to Gordianus, it is nevertheless a compelling read. The usual great events are happening around him, as Gordianus attempts to find out who murdered a young and beautiful woman who was - or may have been - able to prophesy the future. He has other reasons for wanting to solve the crime, but that would spoil the story for you!
Suffice to say, this is as good as the rest of the series.
