Well plotted with colourful characters and a good storyline. Brings the ordinary people of Ancient Rome to life.

I loved the Falco books and this moves the series on with a old character in a new role. You feel you could walk Ancient Rome after reading this.

Written in a modern vernacular but still puts you right in the historical era. Lovely humorous touches, such as someone ordering a "full Roman" breakfast! Looking forward to reading more.

Brilliant. Couldn't put it down! I love the Flavia Alba books.

If you haven't read the Falco books, then read them first. It's not that you need to know the background, it's that they are much better!
Compared with the Falco books the characters are limited and flat. There is no one to compare with Helena or Petronius or Falco's many relatives. The plot is OK, but not really gripping.
However - if, like me, you are a Falco fan and have read all the books and just want more, then this one is similar enough to be enjoyable. I liked it enough to want to give the next one a try.
