4.0 out of 5 stars
Amber Road, 29 Aug. 2013
Sidebottom writes, as in the other novels in this series, with considerable fluency and insight into Imperial Rome. The plot moves quickly, the atmosphere is evocative and the tension compelling. I rated it at 4 star rather than 5 because the central character - Ballista - does not appear to be developing.
