Steven Saylor's historical mysteries set in ancient Rome and featuring investigator Gordianus the Finder enjoy a widespread following in America. Robinson is publishing the whole series - five novels to date - in the UK. Following the success of Roman Blood and Arms of Nemesis, A Murder on the Appian Way is the latest novel in the series to be published in Britain in paperback format. Vivid historical fact, a completely believable world and keen plotting are the hallmarks of Saylor's novels. In A Murder on the Appian Way Gordianus the Finder - the large, eccentric, philosophical investigator whose famed skills and integrity have made him much sought after in Rome - is charged by Pompey the Great with discovering what really happened to the high-born populist politician Publius Clodius whose sinister disappearance has set Rome aflame with riots and arson.
