Synopsis : Libertus, a freedman and pavement-maker, has been searching for his wife for years. He hears of a possible sighting at a slave-market a day away when his patron asks for his help - a burned body has been found and a slave is missing. The solution seems obvious - but nothing is as it appears.

Critique: The story is agreeably written, gets on briskly with its plot, and ends with a highly satisfactory double-take solution ( Gerald Kaufman, Scotsman)

'The story is agreeably written, gets on briskly with its plot, and ends with a highly satisfactory double-take solution'

Gerald Kaufman, Scotsman



'A traditional country-house mystery translated to the Roman world - even featuring the mandatory body in the bibliotheca... Rowe has had the clever idea of making her detective-figure a mosaicist, and, therefore, an expert in puzzles and patterns. Into the bargain, he is a freed Celtic slave, and thus an outsider to the brutalities of the conquerors, and a character with whom the reader can sympathise... There are charming details about innocent life on the fringes of empire' Independent

A traditional country-house mystery translated to the Roman world - even featuring the mandatory body in the bibliotheca... There are charming details about innocent life on the fringes of empire ( Independent)

A witty, readable crime novel ( Cornishman)

Demonstrates Rowe's pithy command of the Roman sleuth genre... A considerable achievement ( The Times)
