Aquila et Noctua

Aquila et Noctua

When the breaking out of the uprising forced his family to flee, Saul’s life as he knew came to an abrupt end. Little he knew about the dramatic changes destiny held in store for him.

At the height of the Roman Empire, a young boy is taken from his home in Palestine to be a slave to a patrician Roman family.

But though the father of the house is obsessed with the boy, it is the son, Flavius, whose interest Saul returns.
As years pass and the boys grow into men, their love will be tested, Flavius’ arranged marriage bringing a selfish and jealous woman between them.

In a time when jealousy, honor, and rivalries were questions of life and death, how can a bare property like a slave protect himself? Will Saul manage to reach freedom, or will he become another victim?

P. J. Mann’s 6th book, Aquila et Noctua tells a story of love across boundaries in ancient Rome, a deeply human tale from a place thousands of years and leagues away.

Problems are part of our everyday life, but some of us seem to spiral deeper into misery and danger. Julius is – without a shadow of a doubt – one such man. Grappling with low esteem, overwhelming nicotine addiction, and a complicated relationship with an overbearing father, he feels like he’s losing a grip on his life, and resorts to fleeing to Boston. When he finds himself in the studio of the eminent psychiatrist, Dr. Wright, Julius feels like he’s got the solution to all his problems at hand, and regardless of his initial hesitations, he agrees to leave for therapy to get rid of his addiction by going to in an isolated resort. When Detective Bochorishvili of Tbilisi Police Department and his cousin Lieutenant Avaliani of the Bureau of the Investigative Services in Boston start to reconsider an old case involving a patient of Dr. Wright, the web of shadows spreads from the Georgian capital to Boston and begins to whirl in a vortex around the figure of Dr. Wright. Little do any of them know that the spider’s web of lies, deceit, murder, and mystery is closing in from all sides, and it won’t be long before the pieces of the puzzle begin to fall into place.

As Laura loses chunks of time, a detective arrives, and the questions at the heart of the hotel begin to unravel.
Continuing the trilogy, Deadly Deception -Insomniac- draws closer to the mystery of Dr. Wright’s research, and the lies behind Laura’s perfect night of sleep.
