From Library Staff

Ancient Rome: In Rome, 80 B.C., Gordianus the Finder plies his trade, in a society rife with deceit, betrayal, and conspiracy.

Gordianus, a sleuth of Imperial Rome, unravels lies, conniving and murder. To do so, he plumbs high and low levels of Roman society, from the seething, twisted elite to the slave class, and visits corners of the city from the lush to the ravaged.
