Set on the cobbles of Imperial Rome, a good old fashioned 'whodunnit' that keeps you guessing right until the end. The characters are rounded, well written and enjoyable. Found myself routing for Ambrosius more and more as the story unfolded. The supporting cast are also well developed, each with their own motivations and back story. What really brought this book to life for me was the description and detail of Rome itself. The author's research was thorough and he uses it to bring the sounds, smells and sights of the ancient world to life. Most books about the Roman world are based on the army and set in various provinces, to read one about the Vigiles, a subject on which I knew very little, was different and refreshing. That being said, there's plenty of action and when the storyline really kicks in you won't be able to stop turning pages! To round up, a brilliant book by an Author I hope to read much more of in the future
