9781845298999: The Triumph of Caesar (Gordianus the Finder 12)

The Roman civil war has come to its conclusion – Pompey is dead, Egypt is firmly under the control of Cleopatra (with the help of Rome’s legions), and for the first time in many years Julius Caesar has returned to Rome itself. Appointed by the Senate as Dictator, the city abounds with rumors asserting that Caesar wishes to be made King – the first such that Rome has had in centuries. And that not all of his opposition has been crushed.

Gordianus, recently returned from Egypt with his wife Bethesda, is essentially retired from his previous profession of ‘Finder’ but even he cannot refuse the call of Calpurnia, Caesar’s wife. Troubled  by dreams foretelling disaster and fearing a conspiracy against the life of Caesar, she had hired someone to investigate the rumors. But that person, a close friend of Gordianus, has just turned up dead – murdered -- on her doorstep. With four successive Triumphs for Caesar’s military victories scheduled for the coming days, and Caesar more exposed to danger than ever before, Calpurnia wants Gordianus to uncover the truth behind the rumored conspiracies -- to protect Caesar’s life, before it is too late. No fan of Caesar’s, Gordianus agrees to help – but only to find the murderer who killed his friend. But once an investigation is begun, there's no controlling what it will turn up, who it will put in danger, and where it will end.

About the Author :

Steven Saylor is the author of the New York Times bestselling Roma as well as the previous books in the Roma Sub Rosa series featuring Gordianus the Finder. Saylor's books have been published around the world in twenty languages and been bestsellers in many of them.  He divides his time between Berkeley, California and Austin, Texas.

From AudioFile :

Gordianus the Finder returns to Rome and is hired by Calpurnia, Julius Caesar's wife, to unravel the plot to murder Caesar during the staging of his four Triumphs (in 46 BCE). While seeking those who would kill Caesar, Gordianus follows clues left by his friend Hieronymous of Messilia, who was murdered while in Calpurnia's employ. Ralph Cosham performs this historical mystery in clear tones and subtle differentiation between the characters. Women are portrayed with light tones, while men's voices vary according to their personality. In a world of intrigue and political unrest, Gordianus inserts himself into the lives of the upper classes, including Brutus, Cicero, Caesar, and Marc Antony. Cosham's voice modulates with emotion while recounting Rome's political intrigue. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
