Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0894070797, Paperback)A wealthy shipping magnate is found murdered in his Egyptian palace; several members of his own family have the means, the motive, and the opportunity to have committed the crime. Against the historical backdrop of Alexandrian Egypt in the first century A.D., Centurion Gaius Hesperian - a reflective and compassionate member of Emperor Nero's palace guard-is dispatched to Alexandria with the seemingly impossible task of solving the crime and apprehending the murderer. Rich detail and a complex cast of characters drive this fast-paced mystery story and romance to its climax. This is another fine read by award-winning novelist Ray Faraday Nelson, author of Timequest, The Prometheus Man, and the short story that inspired the sci-fi movie They Live. Topical illustrations.
