Of our three favorite "Ancient Rome proto-detective" series, Steven Saylor has great historical figure portraits, Lindsay Davis has a bit o' the music hall and Ruth Downie has Tula - the Celt slave of the army doctor/investigator Gaius Ruso.  Slave she may (start out to) be, but she causes no end of...complications for our hero.  Medicus is the 1st book of the series, all of which are vastly satisfying.
