The Judgement of Caesar : A Mystery of Ancient Rome Paperback

Part of the Roma Sub Rosa series



It is 48 BC.For years now the rival Roman generals Caesar and Pompey have engaged in a contest for world domination.

Both now turn to Egypt, Pompey planning a last stand on the banks of the Nile, while Caesar's legendary encounter with the Egyptian queen will spark a romance that reverberates down the centuries.

But Egypt itself is torn apart by the murderous rivalry between the goddess-queen and her brother King Ptolemy. Into this hothouse atmosphere of intrigue and deception comes Gordianus the Finder, innocently seeking a cure for his wife Bethesda in the sacred waters of the Nile.

But soon he finds himself engaged in an even more desperate pursuit - to prove the innocence of his son, who stands accused of murder.

The judgement of Caesar will determine the fate of Gordianus's son; the choice Caesar makes between Cleopatra and Ptolemy will determine the future of the world.

Saylor presents a bold new vision of Caesar and Cleopatra, amid bloodshed and battle, in a setting of Egyptian mystery.
