Invitation to Die

Invitation to Die

Emperor Domitian is hosting a banquet for the senators in honour of fallen soldiers, and it’s an invitation Aelianus and Justinus Camillus dare not refuse. On arrival, they enter a black-painted room furnished with couches resembling those found in mausoleums, complete with a tombstone bearing each of the senators’ names. As the evening progresses the brothers conclude that Domitian has finally turned against them for their uncle’s part in a plot to oust his father, and start to wonder if they’ll ever see the light of day again . . .

‘For fans of crime fiction set in the ancient world, this one is not to be missed’ – Booklist
