An Empire for Ravens: A John the Lord Chamberlain Mystery #12

“Reed and Mayer’s outstanding 12th whodunit set in the sixth century CE takes John the Eunuch, a worshipper of the sun god Mithra and former lord chamberlain to Emperor Justinian, from Greece, where he has been in exile from Constantinople, to Rome, which is under siege by the Goths…The cleverness of the plot and the solution to the murder are among the series’s best. “

“The 12th franchise entry places the reader in the middle of the turmoil of sixth-century Rome and into a tense historical mystery.”
