Note: be sure to read these books in order otherwise key characters and events will become confusing.

Our Roman character, Decius Caecilius Metellus the Younger, is running for the political office of praetor. As he's shaking hands and greeting potential voters, a man steps out of the crowd and points a finger at him. His name is Fulvius and he openly accuses Decius of corruption and political malfeasance during his recent trip to Cyprus. There's just one problem...Decius has no idea who this man is and has never met him before. A quick meeting of Decius' family is called and they discuss how to counteract this hateful accusation.

But the next morning the body of Fulvius is found on the steps of the basillica and Decius is charged with murder! So much for his political career....
