In Rome, ruled by the erratic Emperor Domitian, Flavia Albia is dragged into the worst sort of investigation—a politically charged murder—in Lindsey Davis’s next historical mystery, A Capitol Death. A man falls to his death from the Tarpeian Rock, which overlooks the Forum in the Capitoline Hill in Ancient Rome. While it looks like a suicide, one witness swears that she saw it happen and that he was pushed. Normally, this would attract very little official notice but this man happened to be in charge of organizing the Imperial Triumphs demanded by the emperor. The Emperor Domitian, autocratic and erratic, has decided that he deserves two Triumphs for his so-called military victories. The Triumphs are both controversial and difficult to stage because of the not-so-victorious circumstances that left them without treasure or captives to be paraded through the streets. Normally, the investigation would be under the auspices of her new(ish) husband but, worried about his stamina following a long recovery, private informer Flavia Albia, daughter of Marcus Didius Falco, steps in. What a mistake that turns out to be. The deceased proves to have been none-too-popular, with far too many others with much to gain from his death. With the date of the Triumphs fast approaching, Flavia Albia must unravel a truly complex case of murder before danger shows up on her own doorstep.

The Capitol Ghost is the story of ice skaters, street kids, coaches, criminals, and the ghosts that walk among them. Four children from the Preliminary Jazzicals Synchronized Skating Team enlist brainy teenager Karina Kowalski to help them hunt a ghost at the Capitol and save an elderly night watchman's honor. Karina uncovers the first clue, an ancient prayer, and begins to trace the ghost through nearly sixty years of history. But what will Karina sacrifice in her zeal to help others? A figure skating test, a father, or even her own life? At the same time, a street gang in New York City is led by teenaged poet Dayshawn Rogers. When Dayshawn's little sister is murdered, he requests help from Worldpol. Dayshawn designs a plan that Officer Chuck Zander uses to track down the murderer. But what will Dayshawn lose in his zeal to help others? A publishing deal, a father, or even his own life? Even though the two groups never meet, their lives intersect and influence not only Karina and Chuck, but also people they don't know, people in this world and the next world. The Capitol Ghost is the second novel in the Jazzicals series about synchronized skating, the world's fastest-growing ice skating sport.
