Roman BloodBook - 1991
Gordianus is hired by a young advocate, Cicero, to investigate a murder which is at the center of Cicero's first important case. Cicero is defending a man, Sextus Roscius, who is accused of perhaps the worst crime in Roman law -- the murder of his father -- and Gordianus must find the truth behind the murder to save a man from a particularly grisly punishment.
