Last Seen in Massilia (Roma Sub Rosa, #8) by Steven Saylor

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Last Seen in Massilia (Roma Sub Rosa, #8) In this mystery set in Marseilles in B C master detective Gordianus the Finder is on a personal quest to learn the truth about his missing son Meto Plunged into the midst of the bloody Roman civil war the well connected Gordianus and his son in law Davus survive adventure after adventure as they penetrate the Gaulic city Massilia which is walled against Roman invasion .

From the first pages author Steven Saylor is on sure ground with his distinguished protagonist Gordianus s careful thoughtful musings are infused with real pathos as he seeks out information about his son whom he has been informed is dead There is some speculation that Meto betrayed Caesar and that death was his punishment Lacking a corpse Gordianus cannot bring himself to believe that Meto is really dead .

Indeed bonds between fathers and children their betrayals promises and legacies play a key role in the twisting plot of i Last Seen in Massilia i Literally the title refers to Meto but the motif extends to other key characters as well Apollonides the imperious ruler of Massilia has a peculiar bond with his horribly deformed daughter The city s scapegoat Hieronymus lives out the legacy of his parents illegal double suicide by being the human repositor of Massilia s collective sins He is expected to hurl himself from Sacrifice Rock to appease vengeful gods .

Sacrifice Rock is central to the book the site of a tussle between man and woman that ends provocatively in the woman s death Was it suicide or murder The three witnesses Gordianus Davus and Hieronymus are sharply divided on exactly what they saw Gordianus pursues the truth of this mystery almost as a diversion from the more compelling mystery of his son s disappearance
