JACKET NOTES:  TWENTY TALES OF INTRIGUE, MURDER AND MAYHEM FROM THIS MOST BLOODTHIRSTY EXCITING OF TIMES

With dramatic settings ranging from the Eternal City of Rome to the most remote outposts of her Empire, here are new tales from masters of the historical detective story, with classic gems and rare reprints - plus a special introduction, and a new Gordianus the Finder novella from Steven Saylor.

• A GLADIATOR DIES ONLY ONCE, Steven Saylor: set just before the rebellion of Spartacus, Gordianus is sent to investigate not a murder but a resurrection

• HEADS You LOSE, Simon Scarrow: someone is beheading soldiers during the Siege of Jerusalem, but could the assassin be within the Roman camp?

• NEVER FORGET, Torn Holt: having defeated Hannibal, Scipio Africanus has a murder to solve and consults a wily Greek philosopher to help him

• THE HOSTAGE TO FORTUNE, Michael Jecks: during Caesar's invasion of Britain, the murder of one of the hostages causes a real problem for the guards

• THE FINGER OF APHRODITE, Mary Reed and Eric Mayer: with Rome under siege by the Ostrogoths John the Eunuch is faced with a locked room murder
