"A highly suspenseful plot and a moving resolution distinguish Saylor's masterful third novel featuring Roman sleuth Gordianus the Finder." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Every bit as good as its history- and tension-packed predecessors...sustains a high level of suspense, while Saylor gives readers great sandals-on-the-ground details of the ancient world." - Booklist (starred review)
"Saylor has concocted one of his best novels so far with this tale of intrigue and extraordinarily bloody reckonings...an international thriller, with espionage, world-shaking events, and plenty of plots, plans, and conspiracies." - Edge Boston
"The series has been rejuvenated by the younger hero and is now better than ever. ... [Saylor] the undisputed master of the Roman historical mystery." - Historical Novel Society
"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, then as now." - USA Today
