A Mist of Prophecies119Skickas inom 7-10 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.One afternoon as Gordianus the Finder is crossing the marketplace, a beautiful young seeress staggers towards him and dies in his arms. Possibly insane, and with no memory of her past Cassandra - like her Trojan namesake - had been reputed to possess the true gift of prophecy. For such a gift there are many in Rome who would pay handsomely...or resort to murder. Cassandra had been the confidante of the rich and powerful, until she fell victim to vicious killer. Obsessed with Cassandra and her mystery, Gordianus begins to investigate. As the citizens of Rome nervously await news of the war and the political situation verges on chaos, Gordianus gradually peels away the veils of secrecy that surround Cassandra's life and death. What he uncovers has deadly implications, involving some if the most powerful women in Rome - Gordianus's pursuit of the truth not only endangers his own life, but could well affect the future of Rome herself.

Saylor has acquired the information of a historian but he enjoys the gifts of a born novelist. * Boston Globe * Readers will find his work wonderfully (and gracefully) researched....this is entertainment of the first order. * Washington Post * 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 *
Steven Saylor's fascination with Ancient Rome began in childhood. A history graduate and former newspaper and magazine editor, he has now completed numerous novels featuring Gordianus the Finder. He lives in Berkeley, California.
