Gordianus the Finder Roma Sub Rosa Series

The House of the Vestals

JACKET NOTES:  It is Ancient Rome, and Gordianus the Finder has a knack for finding trouble. Stalking about the city's twisting trails looking for cities and finding bodies. Gordianus has had his share of misadventure with nobles and slaves alike. Known to many as the one man in the ancient world who can both keep a secret and uncover one. Gordianus has stories to tell. In the latest volume of the atmospheric, Roma Sub Rosa series, Gordianus lays bare some of his wildest adventures.
In ‘A Will is a Way’, good-natured plutocrat Lucius Claudius has been played the fool, but it takes Gordianus to prove it to him; in ‘Little Caesar and the Pirates’, Gordianus must act as a go-between for kidnappers, but he begins to wonder who is really being held hostage; in ‘The Alexandrian Cat’, a mischievous girl and a tell-tale sneeze reveal an ingenious plot of murder and thievery: and in ‘The House of the Vestals’, a bit of blackmail goes haywire, and there's no one to take the blame.
A delightful collection of unique and unforgettable mysteries, THE HOUSE OF THE VESTALS is Steven Saylor at his finest--as he uncorks the secret history of Ancient Rome.
