(From the publisher):
Livinius Severus, minor nobleman, respected lawyer, and Stoic, has always tried to live a just and ordered life, in the spirit of the great philosopher-emperor, Marcus Aurelius. The emperor, however, is away at the northern front, dying, and Rome is slipping back into debauchery and intrigue.
The intrigue is only heightened when a beautiful, mysterious woman asks for Liviniusís help in a matter regarding her powerful husband. The following night, on the grounds of an estate after a raucous orgy, the woman is dead, and a Roman season of blood begins, as Stoic after Stoic suffers a gruesome death. the murders spell the end of Liviniusís quiet contemplation, as his life and the Rome he loves together spiral into chaos.
