I had never seen him with such an expression of incomprehension on his face. “Master Aulus,” he panted,” Your uncle –sir, your uncle is dead.”

Aulus Lucinus Spurinna has a pretty rough life. He is forbidden to go to Rome until he is finished his studies, which he thinks will take forever. He has to deal with becoming a man when his uncle becomes very ill. But when his uncle dies he must go to Rome to seek help from his family’s Protector. There he deals with murder, threats, deceit and love. Will Aulus ever find what he is looking for in Rome?

Jack Mitchell’s The Roman Conspiracy is a historical fiction novel. He was born and raised in Canada and has been interested in Roman history since high school. The Roman Conspiracy is his first-ever published novel.

I think that this book is good for anyone studying Ancient Rome or even just interested in it and wanting to learn more. Also this book is good for anyone who just wants a good read. I am not really a historical fiction fan but I think that there are many people who would love this book. Overall I enjoyed The Roman Conspiracy and give it 3 and one half stars.
