Booklist Review

In the waning days of the Roman empire, a series of inexplicable murders plague the frontier outpost of Mongonium. Bracing for the possible invasion of hostile Vandal tribes, the population of this isolated city is also being torn apart by internal religious squabbles. When two Christian sects clash, a pagan sympathizer stands ready to resurrect the glory days of the Roman Pantheon of gods. After several citizens named for Christian martyrs meet grisly and untimely deaths, Treverius Asterius, a wily cartographer commissioned to survey the entire region, suspects foul play. As Treverius draws closer to the truth, a power-crazed government official determined to carve out a new rebel province threatens the security of the entire town. An evocative and authentically detailed historical mystery. --Margaret Flanagan
