It was a summer of glorious triumph for the mighty Roman Republic. Her invincible legions had brought all foreign enemies to their knees. But in Rome there was no peace. The streets were flooded with the blood of murdered citizens, and there were rumors of more atrocities to come. Decius Caecilius Metellus the Younger was convinced a conspiracy existed to overthrow the government, a sinister cabal that could only be destroyed from within. But admission into the traitorous society of evil carried a grim price: the life of Decius’ closest friend—and maybe his own.

The author’s masterful writing and impeccable faithfulness to historical fact join together to create a grippingly suspenseful tale of murder and conspiracy in Ancient Rome.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Roberts again proves that he’s perfectly at home in the urban sprawl of ancient Rome…Readers familiar with the period will be entertained by passing references, such as to the posturing Julius Caesar or to young Catullus.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Roberts’ historical mystery, set amid the Roman Empire, fascinates with its vivid imagery and wit…Simon Vance adeptly pronounces the Latin names, titles, and terms, and infuses the characters with memorable vocal attributes—accents, age differences, irony, and compelling emphasis…Cameos of true historical figures shine with Vance’s inflections.”


Listener Opinions

    " Great fun. As a fan of Cicero, I especially enjoyed reading the attitudes of fellow Romans over the actions he took during the Catiline conspiracy. Look forward to reading through this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ruth | 2/27/2013

    " Good sequel to the first book. I enjoy the peculiar combo of mystery, history, and historical fiction in this series. It's light enough for me to pick it up and go through it in a couple days, but it does such a fine job of world-building that it draws on my imagination too. "

    " I really like the Catiline Conspiracy. This had less detail than Steven Saylor's version. But still good. "

    " Entertaining mystery, but I never found myself really engaged by the story. the backdrop is an actual event in Roman history, but the story ends up being more about the political intrigue than the murders, and I read a murder mystery for the murders! "
