This is another very good story in the series. I am often amazed at how I start a book in this series, and initially find it not as interesting as I hoped, but then something happens and I find myself turning the pages.

There are essentially two separate plots in the book. And both leave you wondering if Gordianus will suffer a deep personal tragedy.

Still, in regard to this particular book, I think it could easily have been 100-150 pages shorter and still be a fine tale.
