Set in ancient Rome, this mystery novel is perfect for the election season. An unidentified corpse is found by workers in an auction house, and it strangely has ties to the fierce upcoming political race. Our protagonist, Flavia Aeria, sets out to solve the mystery and help her friends win the election. Full of wit, history, and relevance, Deadly Election is just one of many mystery novels by author Lindsey Davis. West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel has a review.
