A professor of ancient history and an award-winning author, Paul Maier offers an interesting and attention-capturing account of Rome at the time of Nero and his persecution of the Christians.
Characters are well developed and believable. As one reader said, "If you like historical fiction that is heavy on the history and less on the fiction, this is the book for you." Sex, violence.
