Claudia Seferius is, quite literally, a Roman super-bitch and a wannabe sleuth too. She married for money with an old winemaker, and she is not about to let anybody interfere with her plans. But murders and investigations threaten her way of life - the good-looking sleuth, Marcus Orbilio, is sure not to leave her indifferent to his charms. Highly entertaining and an easy read for those quiet evenings, she is sure to entertain the reader, even if it is 2,000 years later! ( )

Maybe a bit too modern in the heroine's outlook and some of the language but it's a romp of a book. Claudia is married to a wealthy merchant but has a horrible gambling habit. In order to pay for her losses she provides "services" for some other wealthy Romans. However her clients are dying and she isn't sure who's doing it. ( )

First in a series, but I don't like it much.
"Claudia Seferius has successfully inveigled her way into marriage with a wealthy Roman wine merchant. But when her secret gambling debts spiral, she hits on another way to make money: offering her "personal services" to high-ranking Citizens. Unfortunately her clients are now turning up dead, the victims of a sadistic serial killer... Claudia realizes she must track down the murderer herself, before the investigating officer does, and before her husband discovers what she's been up to." - Pan jacket notes.
I like the Lindsay Davis or John Maddox Roberts series much better, for mysteries in ancient Rome. ( )
