From the Inside Flap:

Extraordinary acclaim for Steven Saylor's Roma Sub Rosa series

A MIST OF PROPHECIES
"It would be impossible to imagine a more stellar lineup of suspects in all imperial Rome."
--Kirkus Reviews

"One of the best mystery series being published today...A pitch-perfect work...gripping prose."
--Austin Chronicle

"A gritty depiction of the underbelly of the great city in its heyday. The secret history of Rome has never been so fascinating."--Maxim Jakubowski, The Guardian (London)

"A chilling mystery."--Booklist

"Intriguing both as a mystery and as a historical novel...recommended."--Library Journal

"Outstanding...intelligent and compelling...Saylor shows once again why fans of ancient historicals regard him as the leader of the field."-Publishers Weekly

A MURDER ON THE APPIAN WAY
"Saylor puts such great detail and tumultuous life into his scenes that the sensation of rubbing elbows with ancients is quite uncanny."--The New York Times Book Review

"Saylor is skilled at spinning a tale out of unlikely historical sources...Literate, humane, and dramatic."--Boston Globe

LAST SEEN IN MASSILIA
"Stellar...Saylor presents a vivid tableau of an ancient city under siege and an empire riven by internecine strife. One of today's finest history mystery series."--Publishers Weekly

"Evoking the color and feel of an ancient time, Saylor has given us another entertaining story and crackling good mystery."--Tampa Tribune Times

RUBICON
"Saylor provides historically accurate portrayals while never losing grasp of a captivating plot. His mysteries evolve with intelligent turns and vivid imagination."--Seattle Times

CATILINA'S RIDDLE
"Engrossing...Saylor's understanding of the rich complexity of Roman life has a universal ring."
--San Francisco Chronicle

THE VENUS THROW
"Saylor rivals Robert Graves in his knack for making the classical world come alive. The puzzle is subtle, the characters vivid, the writing sublime-proof that the mystery can be a work of art."
--The Oregonian

From the Back Cover:

In the year 48 B.C., Rome is in the midst of Civil War. As Pompey and Julius Caesar fight for control of the Republic, Rome itself becomes a hotbed of intrigue, riven by espionage, greedy profiteering, and bitter betrayals...

A MIST OF PROPHECIES

A beautiful young seeress staggers across the Roman marketplace and dies in the arms of Gordianus the Finder. Possibly mad and claiming no memory of her past, Cassandra--like her Trojan namesake-was reputed to possess the gift of prophecy. For such a gift there are many in Rome who would pay handsomely. . . or resort to murder.

Obsessed with Cassandra and her mystery, Gordianus begins to investigate her murder. As he gradually peels away the veils of secrecy that surround Cassandra's life and death, he discovers a web of conspiracy linking many of the city's most ruthless and powerful women. Now Gordianus's pursuit of the truth not only endangers his own life, but could change the future of Rome itself. . .

"Vivid and robust...exquisite detail and powerful drama."
--Philadelphia Inquirer

"Saylor shows once again why fans of ancient historicals regard him as the leader of the field."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
