This is a mystery I read many moons ago and I remember really enjoying this book/series. As I reread Roman Blood I four myself wondering what I liked so much about it. Throughout this reading I found descriptions to be way too drawn out and pages of superfluous information that could have been summed up in a sentence or two. In addition, as I was listening to the audiobook and was getting to what I thought was the conclusion, I realized there was still 90 minutes in the recording. It turns out that after the main mystery is solved, Saylor throws in the twist of an additional mystery that Gordianus solves in a tenth of the time it took to solve the original. It just drove me nuts for some reason.
