Book 1, Roma Sub Rosa - A Novel of Ancient Rome
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
In the unseasonable heat of a spring morning in 80 B.C., Gordianus the Finder is summoned to the house of Cicero, a young advocate staking his reputation on a case involving the savage murder of the wealthy, sybaritic Sextus Roscius. Charged with the murder is Sextus's son, greed being the apparent motive. The punishment, rooted deep in Roman tradition, is horrific beyond imagining.
The case becomes a political nightmare when Gordianus's investigation takes him through the city's raucous, pungent streets and deep into rural Umbria. Now, one man's fate may threaten the very leaders of Rome itself.

This is a very enjoyable read, but the iBook electronic version is riddled with spelling and formatting errors which are quite distracting. This is my first try with the iBook app. Is this common? I have not seen anything like this problem on the Kindle app.
