Caroline Lawrence has come through once again with another exciting and entertaining collection of mini-mysteries to complement her 17-volume opus: The Roman Mysteries. As with her previous collection of mini-mysteries (Trimalchio's Feast), these stories occur at various points along the Roman Mysteries timeline (Caroline lets us know precisely where each mini-mystery fits in along her carefully constructed RM story arc, with brief introductions). Everything fits into place - just as our heroine Flavia Gemina neatly puts together her available clues to solve each mystery.
While fans may be saddened to hear that Caroline has finished writing The Roman Mysteries, fans (who have been growing up over the years that Caroline has been writing these novels) can take heart in Caroline's promise of an upcoming Flavian Trilogy - intended for older readers.
I know I'll be looking forward to further tales of Roman mystery from Caroline Lawrence!
