About the Author:

Rosemary Rowe is the author of the Libertus Mystery series. She has also written more than a dozen bestselling textbooks as Rosemary Aitken.

Review:

Clever plot shifts and fully realized characters distinguish Rowe’s 13th second-century Roman Britain mystery featuring pavement-maker Libertus. Rowe offers one of her most ingenious solutions. (Publishers Weekly Starred Review)

Rowe’s excellent Libertus of Roman Britain series features all the ingredients historical-mystery fans are likely to want: meaty plots, authentic detail, realistic period ambience, and a genuinely likable hero. Fans of other series set in ancient Rome by Steven Saylor, Kelli Stanley, and Lindsey Davis, among others, should add Rowe to their reading lists. (Booklist)
