Germanicus, Paperback Book
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


Marcus Corvinus feels his heart sink when he is summoned by Empress Livia. Age has not sweetened her and she's about as trustworthy as a snake with a migraine. But Livia has a way of asking a favour that is impossible to refuse - which is how Marcus finds himself investigating the death of her grandson, Germanicus. And uncovering a multi-stranded web of betrayal and deceit that threatens the imperial succession and even Emperor Tiberius himself.

Review by

A fairly confusing story, as it dealt with a real death of a real imperial. Slangy voice was a bit distracting at time. I'd read others in the series though.
