Reviews

"Saylor evokes the ancient world more convincingly than any other writer of his generation." --The Sunday Times (London) on The Judgment of Caesar

"[T]he twisty fair-play plotting that marks Saylor's best novels is very much in evidence...A partial chronology and historical notes round out this excellent volume." --Publishers Weekly

"The stories are admirably varied--some are extensive mysteries; others offer short, sharp slices of life. All are marvelous reads in themselves and marvelous reflections of ancient Rome." --Booklist (starred review)
