David Wishart's Roman sleuth Marcus Corvinus returns in this gripping mystery. When Marcus Corvinus is given a letter from Sertorius Macro, the Emperor Caligula's erstwhile adviser forced into suicide for plotting against him, claiming that he was innocent and asking Corvinus to clear his name, he isn't keen on the job at all: sticking your nose into the political dirty laundry basket is currently just too damned dangerous. However, when the inconsistencies begin to mount up, Corvinus is firmly hooked. It'll take him two near-death experiences, a lot of fancy footwork in avoiding the fatal attentions of Rome's great and not so good, and some serious riot-dodging in Alexandria before he works it all out, mind...
