Great addition to a great series
on 13 April 2015
I am growing to like this series more and more with each volume! Lindsey Davis has a feel for an earthy, vibrant Rome, where opulence and wretchedness live side by side, and are much more intermixed than they are today.
Her characters are constantly developing, and not always as you would expect - or want!
The story here could sound very modern, but feels equally at home in the Roman setting.
If you are thinking of reading any of the Falco books, I would urge you to read them in order; you will get a lot more out of them that way.
