All Roads Lead to Murder: A Case from the Notebooks of Pliny the Younger

All Roads Lead to Murder: A Case from the Notebooks of Pliny the Younger Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In April of AD 83 a caravan of travelers stop at an inn for the night. The next morning one of them is dead, butchered in horrific fashion. No Roman magistrates are on the scene, so Pliny the Younger, Rome's answer to Sherlock Holmes, takes charge until the provincial governor can be summoned. But all of Pliny's sleuthing may be in vain if it turns out that the killer had another victim in mind — Pliny himself.

Synopsis:

First-century Smyrna comes alive as the scene of a horrific murder. Pliny the Younger, Tacitus, and Luke, travelers in a caravan bound for Rome, become investigators when no Roman magistrates are available. Suspects abound: gamblers, arcane priestesses and Christians. What is the secret of one of the victim'ss own slaves, a beautiful blond, and the German giant shadowing her?
