So when he is asked to investigate the brutal slaying of Vettius Bolanus, one of two candidates for the forthcoming censor's elections, he jumps at the chance." "Corvinus feels sure there is a political motive for the murder, and the obvious suspect is Concordius, the rival candidate. But as he pursues his investigations, the obvious solution becomes less and less likely. Can Corvinus find his murderer before the Latin Nationalists fit into the picture? And what exactly is Meton the chef up to with Dassa the sheep? Marcus Corvinus doesn't know the answers, either."--BOOK JACKET." ;
