This wasn't bad as history, but there wasn't much of a mystery element to it. Gordianus doesn't do much to unravel what happened in Clodius' murder until late in the book.

Another Gordianus detective story, and entertaining as always. The story of the death of Clodius, the ramifications thereof, and all told from the perspective of the one man who can sort the entire mess out. In the background the two "great men" Caesar and Pompey can be seen drifting apart.

* just a note on the description blurb for this novel. Did anyone see a gay subtext? Not me.

Really enjoyable mystery, complete with a who's who of the fall of the Roman republic.
