I like the MC in this series He is like your uncle who lives next door He is normal trying to do the best he canand he can be suckered into things I liked that I got to see detail about him I ve read a few of these novels in this series and they all share some commonalities The author writes with a contemporary flaireven though this is Ancient Rome historical fiction That usually isn t something I like but she makes it work in her books I also like the way she constructs her plots The mystery is methodical and it peels away piece by piece So 3 stars
