The ending springs a genuine surprise on the reader. * The Independent * A compelling (and sometimes very funny) story teller, with a striking talent for historical reconstruction. * Times Literary Supplement * The Saylor hallmarks are...meticulous recreation of Rome's grimy bustling streets...and a brilliantly drawn cast of minor characters. * The Sunday Times *
