Roman Justice: SPQR is about Romans too hot to handle on the prowl to find missing persons as they find a purpose. When wealthy young men and Cato, the Elder's nephew, disappear and moving forward in time, the daughter of Cleopatra and Marc Antony trades places with the daughter of the Roman Emperor, Octavian-Augustus's sister and Marc Antony, one private eye in a toga, Petronius, must solve the mystery before the war with Carthage breaks out and the slave riots overtake Rome.

The praetor says Petronius’s father has been hired to spy on the Carthaginian prisoner of war slave revolt in Setia, near Rome. What happens when he meets the immortal time traveler, king Masinissa of Numidia and becomes a Roman personal eye, a detective in a toga, with a profound responsibility to do a good deed and tend to charity while on his way to start a war?

Everything has a purpose. Petronius's is to slide beyond merely offering comfort. He also tends to charity and does good deeds. Thus is the life of a proto-detective in a toga, a personal eye, a ransomer and a catalyst for Roman justice.
