Product Description

Synopsis

The latest adventure for the Roman sleuth and glamorous heroine of I, Claudia Busy, busy, busy...A house full of actors, Saturnalia coming up, the Guilds to outmanoeuvre, creditors on her back and, ahem, a slight cash-flow problem to deal with; a mother-in-law straining her nerves to breaking point and a certain security policeman, well, disturbing her senses...and Claudia doesn't even know about the murderer lurking in her house. Nevertheless, self-interest and a certain weakness for her aristocratic policeman lure her into lending some unasked-for help to his investigation into the Saturnalia Rapist, a mysterious and brutal figure terrorising Rome at this most festive season. Will she manage to unmask him, or will she just get herself into a whole lot of trouble?

The latest in the series about Roman superbitch Claudia Sefarius is one of the most amusing of the series so far. Claudia, in trouble over a dodgy business deal gone wrong, gives houseroom to a troupe of strolling players over Saturnalia, to entertain her demanding clients. Naturally, one of the troupe turns out to be a murderer, but which one? Of course Claudia's hunky suitor Marcus Orbilio is on hand to help her (are those two ever going to get it together?)and there are amusing supporting characters and subplots. Probably not the most authentic in period detail of Roman whodunnit series, but definitely the most fun to read.

Claudia's latest brainwave to dodge her creditors involves putting on a lavish play, but her plans are overshadowed by a mysterious murderer- how many people are behind masks, and is one of them a homicidal maniac. You bet! Another cracking colourful adventure.

Great fun to read, interesting and amusing characters and a good story too. Only complaint I have is that I could have done with a cast list to help me keep the characters straight in my mind.
