The year is 176 and Marcus Aurelius, one of two Emperors of Rome, has been off expanding the Roman Empire. He has returned to the Imperial
Palace in Rome for two reasons: the birthday party of his daughter, Lucilla, and to complete the marriage arrangement between his only
surviving son, Commodus, and a young woman named Drusa Clovius. But when Drusa is found murdered, it's up to everyone to find the killer -
not only as justice for the victim, but also to prevent another war that the Roman Empire can ill afford!
