Arms of Nemesis

Arms of Nemesis  - Steven Saylor Full of period details, Gordianus the Finder is involved in a case that touches several people. Crassus' brother is dead and one of the slaves is blamed, as that slave has absconded Crassus decides to kill all the slaves in the Villa. Not an unusual thing to do in the time. Giordanus is convinced that there are plots within plots but can he find out what's happening before the funeral games that will have the slaves all killed. Set during the period of Spartacus' revolt this is not a surprising reaction. Interesting and full of period detail this appealed to the classics geek in me, while some details didn't quite ring true overall it swept me up and kept me quite entertained
