Crime & Mystery
Ancient Roman sleuth Marcus Corvinus is despatched to Gaul on a personal mission for the emperor.
AD 42. The emperor Claudius has asked Corvinus to investigate the murder of a Gallic wine merchant, stabbed to death in his summerhouse at Lugdunum. Unused to strange Gallic customs and finding it impossible to get anyone to talk freely to a Roman, Corvinus is convinced there's more to this murder than meets the eye - but how will he prove it?
