This ancient-world whodunnit, A Roman Death, is set in 45 BC. Julius Caesar is at the height of his power, yet disquiet grows under his dictatorship. With the benefit of hindsight, we know that the Ides of March looms and that Rome will soon descend into turmoil. For now, the Roman elite live a pampered existence, attended to by slaves, enjoying life's pleasures, and plotting how to increase their wealth and standing. But a Roman death (or two) will soon change their lives forever.
