It is ancient Rome, and Gordianus the Finder has a knack for finding trouble. Known to many as the one man in the ancient world who can both keep a secret and uncover one, Gordianus lays bare some of his most intriguing and compelling adventures.
The House of the Vestals collects nine of the award-winning stories of Gordianus the Finder by critically acclaimed, bestselling author Steven Saylor. Filling in some of the gaps between novels, this delightful collection of unique and unforgettable mysteries is Saylor at his finest—revealing the intrigues in the secret history of Rome.
In "Little Caesar and the Pirates," Gordianus must act as a go-between for kidnappers, but he begins to wonder who is really being held hostage. In "The Alexandrian Cat," a mischievous girl and a tell-tale sneeze reveal an ingenious plot of murder and thievery. In "The House of the Vestals," blackmail goes horribly wrong, and there is no one to take the blame. These stories and more make up an engrossing collection of finely wrought mystery tales with all the suspense and craft that are the trademark of Saylor's work.
