When Pegasus, racing mega-star and lead driver of the Whites faction, is found stabbed to death in the alleyway beside a wineshop, Marcus Corvinus is already on site. The local District Watch - crooked to a man - claim that the killer's motive was a simple theft. Tracking the murderer down with the often-unwilling help of his wife Perilla takes Marcus deep into the murky world of Roman chariot-racing with all its secrets, skulduggeries and scams; and his task is not made any easier by the fact that in the process he has a lovesick major-domo, an invisible dagger and Mount Etna to contend with.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Wishart creates a pungent, throbbingly vibrant Rome. * Highland News Group *
A real gripping mystery yarn with a strong vein of laconic humour. * Peterborough Evening Telegraph *

Praise for OLD BONES:
'His learning shines through. He has a feel for ancient times yet uses modern dialogue. This neat trick manages to combine the atmosphere of the ancient world while moving the story quickly and assuredly on. Highly recommended.'

* Yorkshire Evening Express *
With the toga-wearing sleuths of Lindsey Davis and Steven Saylor prowling the alleys of Ancient Rome, is there room for Wishart's Marcus Corvinus? On this evidence the answer is resoundingly in the affirmative. * The Times *

Praise for THE HORSE COIN:
'enjoyable . . . an ingenious solution to this ancient mystery'

* Sunday Telegraph *
