What a great book. Couldn't put it down, longer I think than her previous books featuring Pantera the Roman spy and simply fabulous. So interesting this glimpse into the past and the plot is riveting. Don't be put off because it is an historical book it has everything mystery, drama, romance an unforgettable hero, plenty of action the plot twists and turns - and the characters are so well written you feel you know them personally. Brilliant Manda Scott can't wait for the next one!
