Product description

Product Description

This is a story of Togas, Daggers and Magic - for lovers of Ancient Rome, Murder Mysteries, and Urban Fantasy.

"Hardcore Historical Fantasy - Felix the Fox is Sherlock Holmes in Ancient Times"
-- Jonathan Maas, author of City of Gods - Hellenica

"Mehr's imagined world based on ancient Rome feels at once familiar and dreamlike."
-- Ruth Downie, author of the Medicus series of Roman mysteries

"Mehr is a master alchemist, blending the real and surreal on a captivating flight of fantasy."
-- Cynthia Celmer

"YESSS! Harry Dresden in a toga. A bit lighter on the magic usage, but every bit as colorful and intriguing!"
-- Leslie Conzatti, Erin Sky, and a surprising number of Dresden Files fans


A young man is found dead in his bed, with a look of extreme agony on his face and strange tattoos all over his body. His distraught senator father suspects foul play, and knows who to call on.

Enter Felix the Fox, a professional investigator. In the business of ferreting out dark information for his clients, Felix is neither a traditional detective nor a traditional magician -- but something in between. Drawing on his experience of dealing with the shady elements of society and on his aborted education in the magical arts, Felix dons his toga and sets out to discover the young man's killers.

Murder In Absentia is set in a fantasy world. The city of Egretia borrows elements from a thousand years of ancient Roman culture, from the founding of Rome to the late empire, mixed with a judicious amount of magic. This is a story of a cynical, hardboiled detective dealing with anything from daily life to the old forces roaming the world.
