The Triumph of Caesar --- by Stephen Saylor. Saylor has a small series of books to his credit featuring featuring the character, the finder, Gordianus. Set in ancient Rome, in the days of Caesar and Cleopatra, the story line of this installment has the elderly sleuth try to find who was responsible for the murder of his friend Hieronymus. Hieronymus had been retained by Calpurnia, Ceasar’s wife, to find who was endangering his life. Hieronymus, presumably, had come close to the answer, when he gave up his life to his murderer. The novel moves at a sedate pace teaching us considerably about life in Rome as it goes along. The ancient Romans did not kill by gunfire or by speeding car but their simpler methods could be just as lethal. A relaxing read.
