Reviews

The Saylor hallmarks are meticulous recreation of Rome's grimy bustling streets and a brilliantly drawn cast of minor characters * The Sunday Times *
A compelling storyteller, with a striking talent for historical reconstruction -- Mary Beard
With its expert mix of comedy and tragedy, Wrath may be Saylor's most thought-provoking work, a book that shows sympathy for all while asking us to ponder mankind's seemingly limitless capacity to do terrible things * USA Today *
Saylor's scholarship is breathtaking and his writing enthrals * Ruth Rendell *
Writing a detective story about one of the most famous murders in history is no easy feat, but Saylor carries it off with characteristic brilliance. Over the course of sixteen books, he has made this era his own, constructing a detailed and dynamic portrait of Republican Rome in its dying days -- Ian Ross
What can you do, as a novelist, with the most famous murder in history? That Steven Saylor has taken up the challenge in full may explain why he has fair claim to be our greatest living historical novelist. -- Richard Blake
For more than 25 years, the most reliably entertaining and well-researched novels about the ancient world have been Steven Saylor's tales of the Roman proto-detective Gordianus the Finder. The Throne of Caesar brings the series to a satisfying conclusion [and offers] a new, compelling perspective on familiar historic events. * Sunday Times *
This elegant novel brings Saylor's much-loved Roma Sub Rosa series to a triumphant close, painting a vivid portrait of society, politics and the arts during the Republic's dying days * Sunday Express *
