People are being murdered in Rome, one a merchant Grakus and a fair amount of his household too. It is up to Lucius and his people to discover what is going on. The books moves at a super fast pace and gives you the feel of ancient Rome and keeps you guessing. Absolutely loved this book and will most definitely buy more books by this Robert Southworth.
The first 2 l gave a well deserved 4 stars, this one however is something else, loved everything about it.
Great characters, great plot ( kept me guessing), great action.....pretty much everything l like about a book is here. Only complaint is that it ended to soon, could have happily read another 1000 pages or so.
Please keep them coming Mr Southworth.
Wrath of The Furies is written in a similar style to the Spartacus stories in that it is takes place in Rome at the time of the Emperor Hadrian. I admit I don’t know much about the Emperors of Rome and this book humanises Hadrian in an interesting way.
This is very much a crime novel, albeit crimes in true Roman and often horrific ways but the descriptions do not dwell, so that the reader knows what’s happened but is not made to feel bloodsoaked but wants to read on to find out what will happen next. The biggest clue to the identity of the main perpetrator is that he leaves lots of dead ‘bugs’ on the corpses. The main investigator, is Lucius, newly appointed Justitia Magistrate and he is aided by an old ex-gladiator, Beko who, to me was so reminiscent of Spartacus that is was almost like being reunited with an old friend.
The story moves continually – no room for boredom here – the author obviously has good knowledge of the ways of Ancient Rome, their methods of fighting and dealing death and the false ‘friendships’ of those in high up society, all in the name of power and wealth (nothing changes in human nature really) on a large, opulent scale.
I found this to be a riveting story and I read it very quickly, in a few days. Highly recommended.
