63-65. Three SPQRs by John Maddox Roberts

SPQR X: A Point of Law
SPQR XI: Under Vesuvius
SPQR XII: Oracle of the Dead


The last of the series currently in paperback. Decius Caecilius Metellus advances further into public life, solving the occasional murder and conspiracy. A Point of Law is a little too convoluted, even for a mystery novel, and the climax is straight out of Perry Mason. Under Vesuvius and Oracle of the Dead are better, and benefit greatly from the Campanian locales. I intend to keep reading these books as long as Maddox keeps writing them.
