The Award-Winning Debut of the “Roman Noir” Arcturus Series


Winner of the Bruce Alexander Memorial Historical Mystery Award for 2008

Macavity Award Finalist


“… chock full of chills, thrills, and breath-taking adventure. Fueled by fascinating characters and rich details from Londinium in 83 A.D., this unforgettable tale brings the past eerily alive while leaving you hungering for the next book in what surely will be an exciting series. Stanley is a terrific writer.”

Gayle Lynds, New York Times Bestselling author of The Book of Spies


"Imagine Ellis Peters re-written by Elmore Leonard and you’ll have some notion of this gem of a novel—and it moves like a gladiator on speed."

Ken Bruen, Shamus Award-winning author of The Guards


“In Nox Dormienda, Kelli Stanley has created a startling new genre of mystery: the Roman noir. Written in a fresh and uncompromising voice, here is a novel as evocative of ancient times as it is masterful in crafting a mystery as entangled and ingenious as any modern story.

I look forward to vanishing again into the world she has created. Don’t miss your chance to do the same.”

James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestselling author
