The only criticism I can make of these wonderful novels is that the perfect wife and daughter exist only in the pages of these wonderful novels that put you in the streets of Rome.
The Judge's wonderful staff plays a larger role and through them we are introduced to some of complexity of this marvelous society which has so many of the characteristics we ascribe to "urban civilization". When it fell apart in the 6th century, it was almost a thousand years before anything resembling it reemerged. And Scribner, wonderful historian he is, brings it to life without diluting the antiquity which he is describing.
Thumbs up. Off with their heads. Get this book, the pages will turn themselves. I love the Judge Severus mysteries. A different interesting aspect of ancient Rome is illuminated in each one. In order to solve the mystery, the reader has to grasp the minute inner workings of the gladiatorial system. As always Scribner gives you plenty of details to work with.
I did not guess perpetrator till close to the end but it worked.
Scribner always has a good endings. I have to add that I love the parts about Judge Severus's wife Artemisia and their kids.

All reviews for: A Judge Marcus Flavius Severus Mystery in Ancient Rome
I've enjoyed the previous books in this series and was looking forward to the release of the latest installment. The plot of this book was less developed than the others. It centers round the murder of gladiators at the gladiator school. Since these men would have been killed anyway as part of the sport, this didn't seem like the topic for a good story.
You also never really connected to any of the characters. They all seemed unfinished.
You knew from the beginning who the murderer was. The reason for the murders wasn't that believable, but then I don't live in ancient Rome. Maybe for that time and place it would be an understandable motive. There is also a marriage proposal in the storyline. It doesn't seem to have any real reason to be there except as a means to put the other members of the judges family into the story. I hope there will be another installment for this series. I will read it when it comes out.
Every series has one or two books that aren't up to par with the rest of the books. I hope the next book s will have better plot and character development. Allez sur Amazon. En savoir plus sur Amazon Prime.
