Review of Rubicon by Steven Saylor

Rubicon: A Novel of Ancient Rome (Novels of Ancient Rome) - Steven Saylor

A short novel in the Gordianus the Finder series set in Ancient Rome.  This book was another mystery, but it focused more on the family issues of Gordianus and the history of Caesar and Pompey at the start of the Roman Civil War.  I really enjoyed this from a history point of view, but if someone picked this up as a simply mystery, I do not think it would be enjoyable as it was the "reveal" of the murderer was not possible to guess.
