    1. Blargh! I only got as far as I did into this book (60 pages or so) because I remember liking Ovid (the second book of this series). Sadly, somewhere in the dozen or so books between this and that, Wishard has evidently decided that he didn't sound enough like Raymond Chandler. Now he's just over-doing it.Also the gratuitious anachronisms were really getting to me.Poodles in early Imperial Rome? Really?

    2. Fun little adventureAs usual, Marcus Corvinus mysteries mix fact and fiction the later books, however lack any sort of urgency. This is an amusing tale, and a light read, but lacks the true punch of a good mystery. Lots of great historical details make the settings seam real and approachable.

    3. Natalis, from the racing book a couple ago, asks Corvinus to look into a friend's son and his suicide. Corvinus of course kicks a hornet's nest. Very interesting author's note how it fits in. This one's comic relief comes from a ridiculous dog. Pretty interesting take on some real events.
