Can Libertus crack a case of brutal murders and shocking twists? A tale of corruption and intrigue, The Chariots of Calyx is the fourth instalment in Rosemary Rowe's gripping Libertus series. The perfect read for fans of Stephen Saylor and Lindsey Davis. 'Well-researched and eminently readable... Readers can enjoy the plot and soak up facts about Roman life and Language' - South Wales Argus Libertus, freedman and pavement-maker, finds himself in Londinium at the invitation of the Roman Governor when news arrives of the brutal murder of Caius Monnius, the chief corn-officer. Libertus is asked to investigate but his enquiries lead him in disparate directions. Who is the guilty one? The keeper of the granaries? The sinister Calyx and Glaucus, managers of the best chariot-racing team? Or Fortunatus, the handsome charioteer whose relations with the dead man's wife were reputed to be less than honourable? Not until Libertus finds a second corpse does he begin to understand what lies behind the corruption surrounding the interests of Monnius and the chariots of Calyx. What readers are saying about The Chariots of Calyx: 'I found the parallels between the Roman world and the modern one as intriguing as ever, especially the insights into corruption in high places' 'Combines wit, pace, intrigue and remarkable thought processes from our sleuth' 'Another addition to a first rate series of books'
