Bell continues his fine series about the Pliny/Tacitus partnership in Classical sleuthing. Written in an accomplished and accessible style, the book brimstone with a knowledge and love of the protagonists and their milieu.

Another fine novel! 30 Sept. 2013
By Alan Waidelich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Another fine novel from Albert A. Bell, Jr.! Bell takes us back to post Ceasar Rome with Pliny & Tacitus as they solve another mystery involving betrayal intrigue and mystery. Bell does an admiral job of bringing ancient Rome to life without wearing the reader down with a lot of unnecessary history and gets right to the heart of the novel within the first few pages. If you are a fan of Historical Fiction, then this is another MUST READ! You'll find yourself wanting to transport yourself back in time while enjoying this page turner!

Had me from first page 30 Sept. 2013
By Richard Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Albert Bell is improving with each book in the storytelling and the entirely plausible history and historical timeline interwoven in the plot. Being a student of the period, I watch how the characters and their class sensibilities work out, as well as the politics of the time and Bell's characters seem true and remarkably integrated with the plot. Pliny and Tacitus are a fun duo which I hope continues.

Plinius and Tacitus are like Holmes and Watson 18 Nov. 2013
By cathairetic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love this series of books. I hope the Professor Bell will add many more books to it. I am fascinated by the ancient Roman empire. The vicissitudes of daily life are accurately described. In this latest book Pliny and Tacitus are in Naples and its surrounding towns to find out why a slave was killed. The eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD still looms large in the memories of the inhabitants of the area which is covered in hardened grey ash. As Pliny and Tacitus wander among the ruins trying to solve a murder and blackmail, things seem hopeless for the man accused of the murder. A tangled web of lies and deceit stretches from the imperial palace to bookshops, tavernas and villas. The atmosphere of hopelessness seems as heavy as the ash that covers everything around them. I stayed up until 3AM to finish this one. I know you will enjoy it also.

Just keeps getting better 22 Dec. 2013
By Avid Reader in Georgia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Each book gets better than the last as Pliny develops as a character. You really get a sense of time and place and the difficulties of living in a place where areas are still covered by ash. The setting adds to the mystery, which is also well written.

You do not have to read his other books first to enjoy this one, it works well as a stand alone. So if you have never read Prof. Bell before go ahead and get this one, you won't regret it.

Plot keeps pages turning 21 Jan. 2014
By Mrs. Risk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A simplistic beginning had to be overcome before the excellence of an intricate plot snared me. Not as richly detailed as to time and place as in Lindsey Davis's books, which let the time and place fade into bit player roles. A shame as they could have lent the story sparkle. But plot--this writer's forte, rewards the reader. Interesting enough to read more of the series, which I intend to do.
