December, AD39. While enjoying the Winter Festival holiday at his adopted daughter's home in the Alban Hills, Marcus Corvinus discovers that an outwardly respectable pillar of the community, local politician Quintus Caesius has been discovered beaten to death at the rear entrance of the town brothel. Questioning those who knew the victim, Corvinus is dismayed to find Bovillae a place of small town secrets, bitter feuds, malicious gossip and deadly rivalry: a world away from the sophistication of Rome. As he is to discover, there are several suspects with reason to bear Caesius a grudge. But who would hate him enough to kill him? And what would a supposedly solid citizen be doing visiting the local brothel?

It appears merlinsilver didn't read the same book I did. The language was decidedly not rough and the "F" word was only used in one chapter by a boozy character in a wine shop and under circumstances where such use might be expected. The "every other page" claim is a gross exaggeration and misrepresentation. Nor was fingerprint technology used. The author did use fairly modern idiom, but not inconsistent with a "sleuth" of whatever period. Perhaps merlinsilver would have preferred the book to have been written in latin? Not a great book but entertaining enough of its kind.

I did NOT like this book. Staged in AD39 outside of Rome. Language was rough using the F*** word on every other page. Using modern slang every third page (calling people Pal, savoir-faire, etc.), using fingerprint technology. NOT a series that I would follow.
