Dear George,

Since you like historical fiction and enjoyed HBO's Rome, I was wondering what you think about the SPQR books by John Maddox Roberts.

These are murder mysteries in the late Roman Republic. But they are also books about the politics of the time because the author ties the murders to the larger political picture.

The main character is a fictional member of the Roman upper class but most of the other characters are historical figures:
In the first book, we already meet Pompey, Crassus, Claudius/Clodius, Caesar, Cato, Cicero and many more.

I discovered the books while still in high school and they were a great starting point to get into the history of the downfall of the Roman Republic.

By the way, the first book was nominated for the Edgar Allen Poe Award.
