Steven Saylor's Roma Sub Rosa series of novels, set in the later Roman Republic and featuring Gordianus the Finder, has garnered unusual acclaim from readers and reviewers alike, establishing him as one of the pre-eminent historical mystery writers. In A Gladiator Dies Only Once, the second collection of his award-winning stories featuring Gordianus, Saylor more than meets his own high standards. Set between the events of his novels Roman Blood and Catilina's Riddle, these previously untold adventures from the early career of Gordianus - when his adopted son, Eco, was still a mute boy and his wife, Bethesda, was but his slave - will delight Saylor's many fans while illuminating details of the ancient world like no other writer can.

From the Back Cover:

"Saylor's scholarship is breathtaking and his writing enthralls." - Ruth Rendell, The Sunday Times (London)

"A vivid and robust writer, Saylor invests his books with exquisite detail and powerful drama." - Philadelphia Inquirer on A Mist of Prophecies

"Saylor puts such great detail and tumultuous life into his scenes that the sensation of rubbing elbows with the ancients is quite uncanny." - The New York Times Book Review on A Murder on the Appian Way

"Rivals Robert Graves in his knack for making the classical world come alive. The puzzle is subtle, the characters vivid, the writing sublime - proof the mystery can be a work of art." - The Oregonian on The Venus Throw

"Saylor's scholarship and knowledge of day-to-day living in old Rome bring the age alive with all its intensity and intricacies." - Tampa Tribune on A Mist of Prophecies

"Saylor shows once again why fans of ancient historicals regard him as the leader of the field." - Publishers Weekly (starred review) on A Mist of Prophecies
