c2008. Following through his myriad of offerings. The plots all seem vaguely familiar with a seemingly impossible murder - in this case - a murder in a room that was locked and no other entrance. However, despite this - I still did not guess the real villian. Nice easy reading. "It was bat-wing time, between light and dark, the strange hour when the day's work was done but that of the night had yet to begin."
Just a book. An easy to read, easy to digest bit of a mystery. Wouldn't exactly make me race out and buy another of Paul Doherty's books (this was my first), but because it was so simple and harmless, if I saw one by him on a special in a bookstore, I'd likely buy it. For it's appeal as a quick read. A perfect option on those days when I didn't feel like putting too much brain power into reading.

Just a straight forward mystery (although it was pretty obvious who the killer was). I like his books because I like the historical settings and the brief historical setting explanations at the back. Entertaining, but not a must read, by any means. Plus that puts me back onto the "a book a day" pace for the 100.
Interesting. It was like Jack the Ripper in Ancient Rome. That was one part of it. The other part was searching for the tomb of Saint Peter at the Vatican with murder involved. There there was all the politicking of the capital of the Empire being moved to Byzantium. Very interesting.
