"Glevum's dignitaries are in a spin. The wealthy Voluus, ex-lictor to the Imperial Governor of Gaul, has decided to retire to the town and invitations have been issued for a welcome feast. How to respond and, more importantly, where do the ex-lictor's riches come from? Libertus' patron, local magistrate Marcus Septimus Aurelius, sends him on a mission to find out" --Jacket.
