It is 48 BC.For years now the rival Roman generals Caesar and Pompey have engaged in a contest for world domination. Both now turn to Egypt, Pompey planning a last stand on the banks of the Nile, while Caesar's legendary encounter with the Egyptian queen will spark a romance that reverberates down the centuries. But Egypt
itself is torn apart by the murderous rivalry between the goddess-queen and her brother King Ptolemy.

Into this hothouse atmosphere of intrigue and deception comes Gordianus the Finder, innocently seeking a cure for his wife Bethesda in the sacred waters of the Nile. But soon he finds himself engaged in an even more desperate pursuit - to prove the innocence of his son, who stands accused of murder. The judgement of Caesar will determine the fate of Gordianus's son; the choice Caesar makes between Cleopatra and Ptolemy will determine the future of the world.

Saylor presents a bold new vision of Caesar and Cleopatra, amid bloodshed and battle, in a setting of Egyptian mystery.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A compelling testament to Saylor's growth as a writer and to his seemingly effortless ability to imagine characters who feel real. * Publishers Weekly *
Fans of the historical mystery couldn't do better. * Kirkus Reviews *
How wonderful to have a scholar write about ancient Rome; how comforting to feel instant confidence in the historical accuracy of the novel * Sunday Times *
Saylor's gifts include authentic historical and topographical backgrounds and... sombre themes set off the brilliant scenery and clever plotting. * Times Literary Supplement *
Readers will find his work wonderfully (and gracefully) researched... this is entertainment of the first order. * Washington Post *
