Switches between WWII and the present a little too much for my enjoyment. Good, however, for a definately different look at Rome's sometimes involvement in "the affairs of men."

I like the interaction between Hannah and her sister, because I, also, am the eldest sister. The characters continue to be fun and not unrealistic.

It wasn't at all what I expect from a mystery, and it seemed rather disjointed, if that can be used to describe a plot.

"Caroline miniscule is not a notorious femme fatale - it is the name of a style of medieval script. But when a leading authority on the script is murdered, it's apparent that more than scholarly interest is at stake here."
