Summary (From the publisher):

A wealthy shipping magnate is murdered in his Egyptian mansion; several members of his family, including a son and daughter and his new young wife, had the means, a motive, and the opportunity.

But this isn't a contemporary taleórather, it is set in the first century A.D., in Alexandrian Egypt, at a time when the upstart Christian believers are battling the established religion of Mother Isis/Father Osiris-Serapis for converts.

Enter Centurion Gaius Hespedan, a reflective and compassionate member of Emperor Nero's palace guard who, with his lieutenants and soldiers, is sent to Alexandria to solve the crime and apprehend the murderer.
