"A cracking tale with a fast-moving plot." Conn Iggulden, author, "The Gods of War""
Rowe's clever whodunits continue to delight fans of historical crime, with Libertus and Junio proving a formidable and popular detective team. In Roman Britain, AD 189, every slave knows his lot in life depends solely on the morals -- or lack of morals -- of his master. Fortunately for one young Glevum slave, Junio, his owner, former slave turned pavement-maker Libertus, believes heartily in rewarding years of loyalty and service. Junio is to be granted his freedom in an elaborate ceremony at the Basilica Law Court. And what better moment than the manumission to announce the lad's engagement? But the young couple's happiness is threatened by a terrible omen: the gruesome discovery of a corpse, hastily concealed in a shallow grave. Who is it? And, more importantly, who will go to any lengths to cover up their heinous crime? Determined to solve the mystery before the impending nuptials, Junio joins his mentor Libertus in trying to piece together a truly masterful mosaic of murder!Alle Produktbeschreibungen
Die hilfreichsten Kundenrezensionen auf Amazon.com
The historical foreword featuring at the beginning of the book is very well researched and the details are all explained in a really fine fashion.
The storytelling is of an absolute top-notch quality, for the author has the ability to keep you as a reader really spellbound right until the end.
This tale is set early in the year of AD 189 during the reign of Emperor Commodus and this same tale provides great likeable characters within this exciting murder mystery.
The story itself is about Junio, former slave of pavement-maker Libertus, who's now on the verge of being granted his freedom by his former master by getting engaged to a girl when all of a sudden a gruesome discovery of a corpse threatens the new couple's happiness in their first roundhouse.
So it's again time for our pavement-maker/investigator Libertus and his assistant Junio to dig deep into their findings and to find the perpetrator of this gruesome mosaic murder.
A very intriguing murder mystery of a great series created by Rosemary Rowe wherein this formidable team of "Libertus and Junio excel again"!
