While conducting an investigation into an attack on the Parthian Prince Phraates, one of the Parthian delegation is murdered and a full diplomatic incident threatens. The byzantine twists and turns of the case give Corvinus a headache that rivals his customary hangover, and it takes a violent threat to his wife Perilla before he gets a grip on what's really happening.

So poorly written, I had to stop by page 36. I know the dumb writing is purposeful. And not every Roman mystery needs to seem like the book of a PBS production with a very English cast. But I just couldn't stand the dialogue that sounds like the characters are teenagers from New Jersey. And no, Steven Saylor fans will not be amused.
