A compassionate young doctor to the gladiators in one of the Roman Empire’s most breath-taking cities turns detective when a cherished acquaintance is murdered. Solon of Pergamon, the healer of bodies, must find a route into the human heart to uncover the truth.
Torn between his growing love for a beguiling student and the precarious tides of the Roman Empire, he navigates with the same bloody-minded humanity it takes to be chief physician to the great entertainment-warriors of a glittering age.
Classic storytelling in an unforgettable setting.
