    Not a bad readThough boring at places, this was not a bad read The only reference to history were a few names of early days of the empire and thus should not be mistaken for a historical fiction

    I ve been reading a number of novels on ancient Rome and Colton s mysteries set in Pompeii are among the best, in my opinion The tales are in the form of letters from Marcellus, writing in old age, to his friend Appian, recounting a time in his youth when, in hiding, he played the part of a slave to his own slave, Tay, who is passing himself off as a patrician Tay is one of the most engaging characters I ve come across since discovering Dorothy Dunnett s Lymond The books are in need ofc I ve been reading a number of novels on ancient Rome and Colton s mysteries set in Pompeii are among the best, in my opinion The tales are in the form of letters from Marcellus, writing in old age, to his friend Appian, recounting a time in his youth when, in hiding, he played the part of a slave to his own slave, Tay, who is passing himself off as a patrician Tay is one of the most engaging characters I ve come across since discovering Dorothy Dunnett s Lymond The books are in need ofcareful copy editing, but the content shows vast research and an extraordinary ability to bring the reader into a humane version of the Roman mind set circa 62 AD, via the sensitive patrician, Marcellus

    Kept me guessing I have read this book out of order, but no matter the mystery kept me guessing the whole time When you are introduced to a whole plethora of characters, all of which are false, you have a problem trying to figure out the mystery All this is under the baleful eye of Vesuvius,ready to destroy everything outright There is a little foreshadowing of the future destruction, but only a little We know Marcellus survived

    Phew, all caught up now This filled in the blanks for me having already read the book that comes after this one whoops This is a very good murder mystery series set in Pompeii Now all I have to do is go to the beginninga book of short stories that will revealof the history on the two young men featured.

    A well done fourth installment in this series The author is really beginning to focus the plot, which increase the readability While the ruse of Marcellus and Tay is at times wearying, I still enjoy the pair A decent who done it, I thought the ultimate culprit to be a reasonably good surprise.

About the Author: Robert Colton

I became interested in Roman history at a very young age While always reading or writing, I didn t know that my true passion would be the invention of my trio of fictional characters attempting to make their way in Pompeii, until I was reading The Robe by Lloyd C Douglas I am a fan of the happily ever after conclusions,and The Robe did not offer that I put my other unending writing projects down and started typing the tale of a young noble Roman who was a bit less noble than Douglas s hero After years of research on Pompeii and the details of Rome that would have influenced a likeable, and unfortunate young man, an entire world came together for me Pompeii A Tale of Murder in Ancient Rome is just the beginning A fan of autumn and a lover of animals, I am always reading something that takes me back to the glory days of Rome I stumble through the day, quoting Cicero and daydreaming about a time long gone, but not forgotten.
