I am listing all the books in Steven Saylor's Rosa sub Roma series except the last one, which is on my wish list! This was a very enjoyable series...well written, educational (at least for me who previously had no interest in ancient Rome) and fun to see the progression of Gordianus the Finder's life.

You may want to order all of them because they're a fast read and, to me anyway, very addictive.

Great mystery series about ancient Rome.

This book had very little to do with Venus and much more to do with the politics and intrigue of the Roman time. Good family information and interesting characters are developed with a strong "who done it" thread that kept you guessing.

A cozy mystery that takes a bit longer to read then most.

I've read all the Roma Rosa series (I think that's what its called) up to this book. I must say that this one was very good. I think they are all good, but the Catilina's Riddle book was a little too slow for my taste. But the rest have been so good. This one takes the cake so far, though. Lots of interesting characters and I love the tension between Giordanus and his wife, Bethesda, in this one. Great read!!
