His information? An enemy in Rome is attempting to break the family members through spreading rumors they're plotting opposed to Caesar. Lucius has, via an unwise affair, misplaced his task as a central authority investigator.

To upload to Aurelia’s woes, the mansion is threatened through a kind of security racket, and a celebration of wealthy, hard tourists relating to the provincial governor rolls up on the door. Their quarrels, verging at the murderous, and their quest for a rebellious inheritor, the elder son, spill over into Aurelia’s household.
