The Judgement of Caesar

Steven Saylor

Series: Gordianus

Published on: 15/09/2011

Genre: ,


The tenth book in Saylor’s bestselling Gordianus series re-issued with a brand new cover.
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.
