Summary
Rome, 96 A.D. When a notorious senatorial informer and libertine is found stabbed to death in his bedroom, his slaves are suspected. Pliny, a respectable young senator and lawyer, is ordered by the emperor to investigate. However, the Roman Games have just begun, and for the next fifteen days the law courts are in recess. If Pliny can't identify the murderer in that time, Verpa's entire slave household will be burned alive in the arena. Pliny teams up with a starving author and denizen of the Roman demimonde. Pooling their talents, they unravel a plot involving Jewish and Christian "atheists," Egyptian cultists, and a missing horoscope that forecasts the emperor's death. Their investigation leads them into the heart of the palace, and as the deadline approaches, Pliny struggles with the painful dilemma of a good man forced to serve a brutal regime
