Gordianus thought he was retired. but he gets involved in detective work again when a seeress dies in his arms in public. We wonder why until we are given some really important reasons later in the book. I won't spoil it for you here.

As you might effect, the death of the seeress has some rather important connections to the current upheaval in Rome and its empire.

I was also shocked at Gordianus' behavior later in the book---actually a behavior which occurred before the book began--- which explained why he became involved in the investigation to begin with. However, his behavior and his solution to the crime helped settle two significant problems in the book, one of which had been troubling him continuously and another which may help his wife. I don't want to say more.
