Another great historical mystery form Rosemary Rowe, if you enjoy Lindsay Davis you will love the tales of Libertus who is the former slave and part time investigator in these novels.

Latest in the former Roman slave Libertus the Celtic pavement maker mystery series set in Roman Britain. A death at a family wedding postpones the wedding and provides Libertus was an opportunity to discover what happened and why. There's a number of plot lines surrounding the mystery which Libertus unravels in little more than 24 hours. So the story is quick moving and a good mystery.

If you've never read Rowe's Libertus mystery series, seek it out. These little books are fun to read, and they are solid in thier depiction of Roman Britan. An excellent companion to the Steven Seller series on Gordianus and the Maddox Ford series, SPQR. In this book, Libertus has to determine who poisoned the father of the bride before the bride herself is executed. Satisfying and enjoyable.

Libertus must find a murderer before he himself is arrested for the crime.
Takes place in 189 CE, in Roman Glevum, modern Glouster.

Another enjoyable Libertus novel set in Roman Britain. Libertus, a freed slave and pavement maker, solves the mystery of the death by poisoning of the father of the bride-to-be at the wedding ceremony. Needless to say Pompeia's father is a most unpleasant men and her proposed husband old, in debt, and needing her dowry.

This story takes place over the course of 2 days (more or less 24 hours). I felt like it was just getting started, then realized I only had 1 chapter to go. It's perfectly fine for what it is, but don't expect a lot of development on the recurring characters...
