The Blood of Caesar: A Second Case from the Notebooks of Pliny the Younger

Named a best mystery of 2008 by Library Journal! Assigned by Emperor Domitian to search for blood heirs to the Emperor Augustus, Pliny and Tacitus seek solutions to layers of mysteries. Why is a humble workman’s death important to the ruler of Rome, and what connects him to Pliny’s household? How do Domitian’s suspicions relate to Pliny’s old friend and mentor? Is Tacitus’ father-in-law Agricola a villain, victim or savior? Like a sinister red line slashed through a carefully prepared manuscript, the legacy of Augustus marks the connections. Will the answers save the peace of Rome, or mark its doom? Praise for the series: Outstandingly researched and laden with suspense, this journey into ancient Rome by history professor Bell could be one of the masterpieces of the historical mystery genre. Lindsey Davis and Steven Saylor will hold readers over until the third casebook of Pliny the Younger publishes. Highly recommended for all collections. —Jo Ann Vicarel, Library Journal, Starred Review Wonderful historical mystery set in the Roman Empire ... Historical figures come alive in [Bell’s] expert hands. —Bob Spear, Heartland Reviews: Five Hearts Colorful characters, both fictional and historical, ... reveal the sordid web of money, greed and ruthlessness hidden behind the facade of civilization.—Suzanne Crane, The Historical Novels Review Superlative job of leading the reader into his Roman world, ...
