Charged with the murder is Sextus's son, greed being theapparent motive. The punishment, rooted deep in Roman tradition, is horrific beyond imagining.
The case becomes a political nightmarewhen Gordianus's investigation takes him through the city's raucous, pungent streets and deep intorural Umbria. Now, one man's fate maythreaten the very leaders of Rome itself.
