Love, lies, betrayal, extortion… just another day in the life of Clodia, a wealthy Roman woman, who will do anything to get what she wants. When she spots a handsome young poet named Catullus at a dinner party, this chance encounter sparks a whirlwind romance. Rather than leading to fairytale ending, however, this relationship brings only heartache, jealousy...

...and murder.

Clodia: Fabula Criminalis weaves fact and fiction into an intricate web of intrigue and drama and best suits advanced beginning or early intermediate readers of Latin. However, while it was written specifically for middle and high school students, more advanced readers will find much to enjoy as well.

Hold on tight! There are many twists ahead…
