Review

Caroline Lawrence's Roman Mysteries series is brought to its dramatic conclusion... This seventeen book epic makes ancient classic stories accessible and exciting. I think the whole package is a tremendous achievement and sure to bring in a whole new readership. (Sue Steel CHILDREN'S BOOKSELLER)

Caroline has taken the reader from Enid Blyton to Mills & Boon in seventeen steps, and I mean that in the best possible way. Few authors claim to have been inspired by romantic fiction, whereas many crime writers do mention Blyton as an early inspiration. Add a good dollop of history, and you¿ve got the whole series of the Roman Mysteries. Personally I have learnt a lot about the brief period that the books cover, and I was never one for Roman Emperors. (BOOKWITCH)

Lawrence steers this story - and the series - to a romantic and irresistably weepy conclusion, and, like so many good endings, it involves breathless reunions, a journey and a wedding (I mustn't reveal anymore...) (Daniel Hahn INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)

This series doesn¿t disappoint. From the early days of The Thieves of Ostia the books work their way across the Roman world, giving tantalising glimpses into how people lived and magically bringing the past to vibrant life... for all the carefully portioned out history, it is the story that is paramount ¿ and over the seventeen books Caroline Lawrence has grown as a storyteller, and as a writer. This final book ends the series triumphantly. (Leonie Flynn ULTIMATE BOOK GUIDE BLOG)

It is clear that Lawrence is a scholar and, more importantly, she is passionate about the subject of Ancient Rome and about teaching it to children...Even in this day and age, historical accuracy like that present in this book is a valuable way to teach children something interesting; while, hopefully, enthralling them with a solid mystery and a great story. (Sam North HACKWRITERS.COM)

Since the release of The Thieves of Ostia in 2002, Caroline Lawrence's rip-roaring Roman Mysteries series has taken its readers on a string of heart-stopping and vividly evoked adventures all over the Roman Empire... the profuse and fascinating historical detail that has been carefully woven into its gripping pages...another absorbing and illuminating historical whodunit...the captivating conclusion to this epic and hugely engrossing series. (CAROUSEL)

Book Description

The final Roman Mystery begins with the emperor's death - and discovering if it were natural or murder is the ultimate mystery for Flavia and her detective friends.
