Marcus Corvinus is already restless after a couple of days in the Alban Hills, visiting his stepdaughter, Marilla. So when he is asked to investigate the murder of Vettius Bolanus, one of two candidates for the forthcoming censor's elections, he jumps at the chance. The obvious suspect is Concordius, the rival candidate, but as Corvinus pursues his investigations, the obvious solution becomes less and less likely

No cause for concern by David Wishart( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 20 libraries worldwide
"I need a favour from you, Corvinus. Do what Occusia asks, and I'll be very grateful. Very grateful indeed. Turn her down, or fudge things, and - watch my lips here, please - you'll wish that you'd never been born. Your choice, absolutely no pressure. You understand?" Four years down the line, and Sempronius Eutacticus is still the charming, good-natured organized-crime boss that he was when they last met. Now his stepson has gone missing, and he wants Corvinus to trace him. Not that it should be difficult: young Titus has simply run off to join his uncle's acting troupe, and there really is no cause for concern. Until, of course, his body turns up. The thirteenth in the Marcus Corvinus series
Finished business by David Wishart( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
November, AD 40. When a wealthy consul's wife asks Corvinus to investigate the death of her uncle, killed by a block of falling masonry during renovations on his estate in the Vatican Hills, a sceptical Corvinus is inclined to agree with the general verdict of accidental death. But his investigations reveal clear evidence of foul play, as well as unearthing several skeletons among the closets of this well-to-do but highly dysfunctional family. Who could have wanted Lucius Surdinus dead? His vengeful ex-wife? His ambitious mistress? His disillusioned elder, or his estranged younger, son? Or does the key to the mystery lie in the dead man's political past? But when Corvinus's investigations draw him to the attention of the emperor, a dangerously unpredictable Caligula, his prospects of surviving long enough to solve the mystery look slim
