Publisher's Summary

Ancient Rome, in this accurate and evocative series, is just as politics driven as any major American city - possibly even more. Decius Caecilius Metellus has, through a series of rather wild adventure, and in the act of tracking down killers and other reprobates, barely escaped annhilation several times. Now, newly elected to the office of aedile, the lowest rung on the ladder of Roman authority, he must smoke out corruption and conspiracy that threaten to destroy all of Rome.

Love Robert's SPQR series.

This is not the very best of the series only because the ending is a little more contrived then usual but really who cares. Learned much about Ancient Rome as usual.

"It's easier to hide an elephant under a bed than a conspiracy in Rome"

Another delicious Roman romp as our hero, Decius, seeks to uncover shortcutting in the building industry as the water level rises and theatens to seriously flood the city.
Written with panache and humour, full of fascinating detail and robustly read by John Lee, this is a book to thoroughly enjoy.
