Review by: Irene Soldatos on Feb. 26, 2013 : star star star star
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. Those who like the Falco (Lindsay Davis) or Medicus (Ruth Downie) style historical novel will also enjoy this. I give it 4/5 stars because one must keep back something for masterpieces, musn't one? ;-)
