The Mystery of Healing by A P McGrath
Solon of Pergamon turns detective when his cherished old teacher is murdered. Suspicion falls on a mysterious student who holds a secret that threatens the powerful ruling class. Tossed between the search for love and the precarious tides of the Roman Empire, Solon navigates with the same bloody-minded humanity it takes to be chief physician to the gladiators of a glittering age. Classic story-telling in an unforgettable setting.
Book Length: Long Novel - 320-650 PagesHistorical fiction is a literary genre in which the narrative takes place in the past. Historical books capture the particulars of the time as correctly as possible to get authenticities, such as societal norms, ways, habits, and traditions. Historical fiction is put in a real location during a culturally recognizable moment. The facts and the actions from the narrative can be a mixture of real occasions and ones in the writer's creativity as they fill in the gaps. Characters may be pure fiction or based on actual people. But what about them and their look and attitudes, how they talk, and issues that they face, everything which should match the era.
