    Mass Market Paperback ¾ Roman Blood MOBI ↠ roman ebok, blood kindle, Roman Blood Kindle7510A great start to this Roman series which attacks on two levels one being the atmosphere and culture of Ancient Rome and the other being a good old mystery To rate the book on one of these levels solely would do a disservice the mystery is playing somewhat second fiddle to the ambience for a large part of the book but then becomes the main driving force at the endThis is one of those where I wasn't expecting to read it but it was a group read for this month it was on my very large wish list and it cost the princely sum of £084 on the Kindle It caught me off guard because of this I was thrown straight into Ancient Rome with all these historical figures and their way o

    Mass Market Paperback ¾ Roman Blood MOBI ↠ roman ebok, blood kindle, Roman Blood KindleHaving not studied Latin or ancient history at school or university my knowledge of the ancient world has come from reading Gore Vidal's Creation and Robert Harris' Imperium Oh and Asterix the Gaul and it's various sequels I've also gleaned a bit from Shakespeare although I've never been that keen on Shakespeare's histories and while I've spent time looking at Roman ruins and ancient Roman and Greek sculptures in various places that has not led to the acquisition of any knowledge about the history those things represent All this means that I came to this particular novel the first in a series set in ancient Rome and featuring Gordianus the Finder with very little knowledge of the time in which it is set and with no particular expectations The first factor put me at something of a a disadvantage The second

    Mass Market Paperback ¾ Roman Blood MOBI ↠ roman ebok, blood kindle, Roman Blood KindleThis is the best starter book I have read in a long time Normally I find myself annoyed with books intended to start a series There tends to be too much delving into the background of the lead characters The actual story tends to get lost in various details about where things take place My other problem especially with histori

    Mass Market Paperback ¾ Roman Blood MOBI ↠ roman ebok, blood kindle, Roman Blood KindleQuick re read before reading number two in the series – The only flaw for me I mean was the long history lesson about Sulla which sent me to sleep serves me right for reading in bed Otherwise it kept me glued to the electronic pagesI missed the first twist which is not surprising I always miss the twist And I fell for the red herring which followed that too is not surprising I have a great willingness to suspend disbelief when I read a mystery All I care about is if the writing is good and if there are no glaring problems This is in fact a well written start to an interesting series that I will certainly continue

    Mass Market Paperback ¾ Roman Blood MOBI ↠ roman ebok, blood kindle, Roman Blood Kindlerating 555I always hate writing reviews for mysteries because everything I say feels like a spoiler So I'm keeping this one short and sweet and couldn't possibly do justice to the awesomeness that is Gordianus and his brilliant sleuthing skills 80 BC Rome The famous Cicero before he becomes famous that is hires Gordianus the Finder to solve a mystery and help him make history or well just help him finds facts for a client's defense Taken from a real case and a real defense by Cicero And then of course we have the dictator Sulla all life is living under the shadow of his ruleAnd ancient Rome is a city without a police force A city of rich nobles and poor street urchins It is as violent as beautiful and wondrous And Saylor knows how to pull together the

    Mass Market Paperback ¾ Roman Blood MOBI ↠ roman ebok, blood kindle, Roman Blood KindleThis is an engrossing mystery set in the Rome of 80 BC where the rather shady Gordianus the Finder investigates a case of murder on behalf of the young lawyer Cicero The investigation takes Gordianus to the houses of nobles and the brothels of Rome encountering slaves bodyguards and senators and the corruption of Sulla's dictatorshipThis is an absorbing novel and the author really brings to life every aspect of Roman life from top to bottom of society Gordianus' investigations proceed steadily although there are moments of danger this is not in any way a 'blood and guts' Roman novel and its fascination lies in the way the reader is immersed in the detail of Republican Rome The brutality
