Furies by D. L. Johnstone

Furies
D. L. Johnstone
An Ancient Alexandrian Thriller
Publisher: D. L. Johnstone

It's 36 AD. The city of Alexandria is a center of Roman commerce — and a sinful playground for the pleasure-seeking rich and powerful.

For wealthy merchant Decimus Tarquitius Aculeo, however, Alexandria has become a living hell. Ruined by a string of mysterious investment disasters, deserted by friends and family, his reputation in tatters, Aculeo is forced to eke out a meagre existence in the poorest, back streets of the city. He's desperate to find the man he blames for the debacle and recover what he's lost.

Aculeo's quest forces him deep into treacherous, unfamiliar territory, Alexandria's criminal underworld. And entangles him in a web of corruption, conspiracy and murder.

A common slave is found murdered in the magnificent temple of the god Serapis. Days later, the brutalized body of a high-priced hetaira is discovered floating in a canal, after an evening entertaining the city's elite. The grim truth soon becomes clear: a ruthless killer is moving among Alexandria's aristocrats, commercial titans, and philosophers.

And ominous clues connect those murders to Aculeo's quest, with disturbing revelations about his own past.

Aided by an Egyptian mortuary attendant, a brilliant philosopher, a lovely hetaira, and his last remaining friends, Aculeo must hunt down a terrifying murderer in the highest echelons of society if he hopes to reclaim the life he has lost.

But first, he must survive …
