Crime Room Drama from Ancient Rome,
This review is from: The Slave-girl from Jerusalem: Roman Mysteries 13 (THE ROMAN MYSTERIES) (Hardcover)
Straight from the intricusies of ancient Roman culture comes the new childrens novel by Caroline Lawrence.
It follows the four friends as they attempt to prove the innocence of one of Miriam#s childhood friends.
The new element of a trial has been added to enhance the drama of ancient times, not only adding to our knowledge of customs and traditions but also enriching the storyline and characters.
As usual, new faces appear and old friends return, yet the plot is as original as ever.
I found this book very hard to put down, every time you think the mystery is drawing to a lose, a new piece of evidence comes to light. The book is woven with murder, betrayal and love, which makes it immpossble to stop.
