Subject: " When Perennis Felix, favorite of the Emperor and would-be enemy of all, heralds his arrival in Glevum with the arbitrary execution of a slave, there are few who dare question his actions. Indeed a feast in his honour is approved in the cause of self-preservation. Libertus, and his patron Marcus Septimus are among the reluctant at the celebration. But the festivities come to a sudden end when Felix appears to choke on a nut and dies in front of a stunned gathering. And soon the ever-vigilant Libertus notices the disappearance of at least two guests - one of whom he has good reason to suspect is not all he seems to be. Is it possible that behind Felix's death lies a much more sinister explanation..?" (pub blurb)
Unique Qualities: A Libertus Mystery of Roman Britain. 3rd in the series.
