In a relentless quest to secure his claim as ruler of Rome, Julius Caesar becomes enmeshed with Ptolemy and Cleopatra, sibling rivals to the Egyptian throne. Against the compelling but ominous backdrop of ancient Alexandria, storms are brewing and lives are about to be annihilated...In 48 B.C., Roman generals Caesar and Pompey have long engaged in a battle to rule the world. Now, as Pompey plots a reckless stand on the banks of the Nile, Gordianus the Finder-who has brought his wife Bethesda to the river seeking a cure for her in its sacred waters-finds himself suddenly at the heart of a series of treacherous and history-altering events.While Caesar and Cleopatra embark on a legendary romance, Egypt remains ravaged by the brutal contest between the Queen and her brother King Ptolemy. Worst of all for Gordianus, his once-disowned son and Caesar's right-hand man, stands falsely accused of murder. Caesar's judgment will decide Meto's fate, and it is up to Gordianus to somehow overcome colossal malevolent forces to reveal the carefully obscured truth and spare his son's life."It would be impossible to imagine a more stellar lineup of suspects in all imperial Rome."-Kirkus Reviews"One of the best mystery series being published today...A pitch-perfect work...gripping prose."-Austin Chronicle
