Gordianus the Finder Roma Sub Rosa Series

Last Seen in Massilia

JACKET NOTES:  Once again, Steven Saylor creates a marvelous novel of Roman life, rich with the bloody pageantry of war, the heartaches, lusts, and passions of a vivid cast of characters, and the sinister intrigues of politics, when one man's private sorrow sweeps him into a world of gaudy excess...and danger...
In the city of Massilia (modern day Marseilles), on the coast of Southern Gaul, Gordianus the Finder's beloved son Meto has disappeared-branded as a traitor to Caesar and apparently dead. Consumed with grief, Gordianus arrives in the city in the midst of a raging civil war, hoping to discover what happened to his son. But when he witnesses the fall of a young woman from a precipice called Sacrifice Rock, he becomes entangled in discovering the truth-did she fall or was she pushed? And where, in all of this, could it be connected to his missing son? Drawn into the city's treacherous depths, where nothing and no one are what they seem, Gordianus must summon all of his skills to discover his son's fate-and to safeguard his own life.
