An Unkindness of Ravens

Arria Paeta was a Roman matron, the wife of Caecina Paetus. Of course she was obliged to take his name. Ancient Rome was known for its gross oppression and exploitation of women.

DCI Wexford believes that the disappearance of Rodney Williams is a simple case of a husband who has run off with another woman. But when his body is discovered, buried in a wood, investigations reveal the victim’s shocking double life.
