A good mystery. Enjoyable in set in Rome, this book blends history, relgion at the time and murder into a twisting tale. But Sister Fidelma and Brother Eadulf will solve the mystery and learn more about them selves, their homelands and of Rome.
As with the other Sister Fidelma books I've read, the history is interesting, as are the politics between the Roman and Irish churches, as they began to clash. The mysteries are not always completely obvious, but the writing is a tad repetitive. (I can't tell you how much I want to buy her a hair clip to pin back that single rebellious lock of red hair!) Overall, it's a good book.
