The Mystery of Healing by A P McGrath
Solon of Pergamon turns detective when his cherished old teacher is murdered. Suspicion falls on a mysterious student who holds a secret that threatens the powerful ruling class. Tossed between the search for love and the precarious tides of the Roman Empire, Solon navigates with the same bloody-minded humanity it takes to be chief physician to the gladiators of a glittering age. Classic story-telling in an unforgettable setting.
