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.

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.
