Marcus Corvinus Synopsis: Ovid is the first book in the Marcus Corvinus series by David Wishart. When young aristocratic layabout Marcus Corvinus is approached by the stepdaughter of the exiled and now dead Roman poet Ovid and asked to clear the return of the ashes for burial, he cheerfully agrees; he doesn’t expect any problems. Only when he makes the application to the imperial authorities it’s turned down flat. So what, Corvinus asks himself, did Ovid do that was so bad that they won’t even allow his bones back into Italy?

Germanicus by David Wishart is the second book in the Marcus Corvinus series. Marcus Corvinus knows nothing good is coming when he is summoned by Empress Livia. Age has not sweetened her and she’s about as trustworthy as a snake with a migraine. But Livia has a way of asking a favour that is impossible to refuse – which is how Marcus finds himself investigating the death of her grandson, Germanicus. And uncovering a multi-stranded web of betrayal and deceit that threatens the imperial succession and even Emperor Tiberius himself.
