“Fans will greet this new Corvinus novel with open arms.” (Booklist)
Top Customer Reviews
The main plot becomes very complex with several leads that lead to Marcus Corvinus into the very shady dealings of Bovillan senators, aediles, questors, a brothel owner and an assorted group of other characters. The twists and turns are many. My interest was maintained throughout the entire novel. I often read late into the early morning.
One of the major reasons that I like this series is the B-story. This novel adds to knowledge of Marcus Corvinus and his family. For this novel, Marcus Corvinus and his wife, Perilla, are staying at the home of their adopted daughter, Marilla, and her doctor husband, Cornelius Clarus who helps Marcus Corvinus with the cause of death for several murders. There is an entertaining turf war with Marcus’ and Perilla’s majordomo, Bathyllus, and Cornelius’ and Marilla’s majordomo, Lupercus. Add to this mix, Marcus’ Mother and Stepfather arrive with their chief, Phormio, to cook the winter festival dinner. A little history here; whenever Marcus and Perilla consume Phormio’s cooking, they spend the next day or more in gastrointestinal distress. This enjoyable B-story is very adroitly woven into the main story and enhances the pleasure of reading this novel.Read more ›
