Set in 92 B.C., this title serves as a prequel to Saylor’s historical mystery series. Eighteen-year-old Gordianus, with his tutor, the Greek poet Antipater, tour the Seven Wonders of the World, and solve a few mysteries along the way. The first mysteries: Why did Antipater stage his own death and funeral before leaving home, and what is the real reason he is visiting all these sites? Stephen Plunkett, in the voice of Gordianus, guides the listener on a fascinating tour of the ancient world, where mystery and political intrigue abound. Listeners familiar with the series will be interested in Gordianus’s backstory, but an interest in adventure and the ancient times is all one needs to enter this fascinating world.
