An organization chart of Rome's many political and religious offices would help.

A man has been found murdered, and it is up to Decius Caecilius Mettelus the Younger, commander of the local vigiles to figure out who did the deed. As the bodies begin to pile up, Decius begins to realize that there is a lot more going on here than simple gang murders or robberies gone bad. But the he begins to come under pressure from the powerful in Rome to sweep the murders under the rug, something he just can't do. This places more than future career in jeopardy and Decius realizes he needs a lot of help and luck to catch the murderer and make it out alive.

A great murder mystery set in late republican Rome. You will recognize some of history's great names in the background (sometimes even as fairly major players). Good mystery with a great setting and an excellent ending.

A must for the historical mystery set.
