Decius Caecillus Metellus the Younger, a member of Rome's civil detective force, investigates two murders that are connected with secret information leaked from the Vestal temple, and uncovers corruption at the highest levels of government.
Blackmail, corruption, treachery, murder--the glory that was Rome.
In this Edgar Award-nominated mystery, John Maddox Roberts takes readers back to a Rome filled with violence and evil. Vicious gangs ruled the streets of Crassus and Pompey, routinely preying on plebeian and patrician alike, so the garroting of a lowly ex-slaved and the disembowelment of a foreign merchant in the dangerous Subura district seemed of little consequence to the Roman hierarchy. But Decius Caecilius Metellus the Younger--highborn commander of the local "vigiles"--was determined to investigate. Despite official apathy, brazen bribes, and sinister threates, Decius uncovers a world of corruption at the highest levels of his government that threatens to destroy him and the government he serves.
