the most thrilling part of the novel for me was Caroline Lawrence's depth of research. Her relation that some of the characters were based on real historical figures gave me great delight, and will doubtlessly enthuse all her readers to find out more about the Roman world.
It's a roller-coaster of a read that grips one until the very last page... The story has pace and thrills and spills aplenty
