An astonishing new order has usurped power in Rome, and Libertus's wealthy patron now finds himself powerless and under threat. Charged with escorting Marcus's young family to a place of safety, Libertus finds his task beset with problems as he uncovers a grisly secret and an ancient crime - with ramifications stretching to the present day.

Review:

"Highlighted are the uncertainties of life, loss of a patron's protection, the ever-present risk of starvation, the need to sell a child into slavery to guarantee the lives of others and of the child itself. These are the aspects which I have always found most convincing and fascinating in these novels. Rosemary Rowe has caught the atmosphere, tone and perhaps the reality of the times better than almost any other author - quite a boast for a writer of crime mysteries."--K Currie, reviewer

"I've been a fan of Rosemary Rowe's Libertus series for many years and The Ides of June, the sixteenth, does not disappoint."--Kate A, reviewer

"A clever plot--with wry humor, suspense, and intriguing descriptions of life in ancient Britain--plus a remarkable hero make this a superb read"--Booklist

"Highly recommended"--Historical Novel Review
