|Plot Summary of Murder in The Forum|
|"Elderly Libertus doesn't have much luck. Not only does he recognize the body that's been dragged to death as his patron's slave, but the owner of the carriage is an amazingly powerful patrician who wants him to summon his patron, the Governor's assistant, Marcus Septimus. Marcus is visiting his paramour and will not take kindly to an interruption. But the visitor is Perennis Felix, a favourite of the Emperor.
Felix is then poisoned at a welcoming banquet. Libertus must discover who the murderer is before the Emperor finds out. But Felix had a lot of enemies. "
