3 Great Historical MysteriesBruce Macbain, M.E. Mayer, Priscilla Royal

Here are three great historical crime novels in one volume.

ROMAN GAMES: Rome, AD 95 – a city under the thrall of a tyrant. It is up to Gaius Plinius Secundus – better known to posterity as Pliny the Younger – to investigate the murder of one of emperor's favourites. He has just 15 days to solve the case, 15 days that will threaten Pliny's conscience, his life and the stability of Rome itself.

ONE FOR SORROW: Amid the splendour and the squalor of sixth-century Byzantium. A treasury official has been murdered. Could someone have killed him for a priceless holy relic? A Knight from distant Bretania seems to believe so...

WINE OF VIOLENCE: AD 1270. On a remote East Anglian coast stands the priory of Tyndal, a place dedicated to love and peace. But Eleanor of Wynethorpe, the new prioress, will find little of either... Only a day after Eleanor's arrival, a brutally mutilated monk is found dead in the cloister gardens.

Bruce Macbain holds a BA in Classics from the University of Chicago and a PhD. in Ancient History from the University of Pennsylvania. He has taught Greek and Roman history at Vanderbilt and Boston University. He lives with his wife in Brookline, MA.
 
M.E. Mayer is the husband and wife team of Mary Reed and Eric Mayer. Mary was born in Newcastle-on-Tyne and ran the Theology Faculty office at Oxford University before she emigrated to America and met her husband and co-author.
Priscilla Royal was born in Seattle, grew up in British Columbia and now lives in Northern California. She has a degree in world literature from San Francisco State University and is the author of nine books in the Medieval Mysteries series.

'Roman Games is brilliant. A brutal vision of Rome, rigid with hierarchy and fear.', Robert Fabbri

'One for Sorrow is darned close to being the perfect history mystery', Booklist

'Intriguing plot, chilling conclusion and all the potential to evolve into a series as enduring as Ellis Peters', Publishers Weekly (on Wine of Violence)
