I've been reading this series out of order, so it was interesting to see a younger, sometimes foolish version of Gordianus. I was disappointed that Saylor began the book with a Holmesian* interlude. It was a cheap ploy to hook readers to a then-new series. Thankfully, Saylor made Gordianus ashamed of himself for showing off.

*I adore Sherlock Holmes in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's hands. I'm often disappointed by copycats though--the current BBC series being an exception.
