    The next book competition for September is for a copy of ROMAN GAMES by Bruce McBain. Set in AD 96 and told by Plinius Secundus, known to us as Pliny the Younger, this is a thrilling crime story set in Ancient Rome.

    For your chance to win one of three copies of this book just go to the entry form on Survey Monkey and complete the simple questions.

    The competition will run until Sunday 23 September.
