Summary (From the publisher):

It is 45 B.C. Julius Caesar is at the height of his power, and the fortunes of the Fufidii and Scauri families are at a watershed. Quintus Fufidius agrees, against his wife’s instincts, to the marriage of their daughter to Lucius Scaurus. It is an alliance that could heal old feuds and possibly create a new dynasty. Unknown to Quintus, the Scauri clan have proposed the betrothal to save their family from bankruptcy. But before the wedding takes place one of the principals is murdered.

Roman society is shocked when Quintus’ wife, Helvia, is accused not only of murder, but also of incest. The trial of Helvia, in which she is defended by Cicero, is a courtroom battle on the grand scale and accompanied by the political shenanigans that result in Caesar’s assassination.
