I think this one is superb. It most closely followed the traditional ideal of the whodunnit, keeping the reader in the dark with only the slenderest of hints right up to the end. I find Davis's admittedly anachronistic Raymond Chandleresque style witty and lively, and unusually not detracting from the historical content. Her knowledge of ancient Rome really is first rate.
