Returning to the familiar and homey albeit soggy ground of Britain Ruso s next adventure is not on the frontiers but rather closer to the centre of administration of the emerging province What to ExpectCharming and complex characters well researched details about Roman life in Roman Britain under Hadrian murders and other nefarious deeds a plot and sub plots that twist and build up all for a great read overallWe get a look at the bureaucratic machinations of governance how the Roman province was run in terms of organisation money relations with local chieftains and the common life As Ruso is out of the legions in this volume we don t get a view into the legionsWhat I likedThis goes for the whole series The absolute charm of the writing All characters are fully fleshed believable with their own motivations The writing is witty the setting is rich the plot thought out and the mysteries engagingThese are the kind of books where you care for the characters Downie has a knack to depict the world views of the characters realistically switching viewpoints from a Roman medical officer to a British peasant woman It is clear that each character from main to support cast is a fully realised person with their own agendas and biasesThe plot of the stories grips you till can t put the book down Downie is masterfully weaving the investigations through sub plots distractions daily lives grand events till you just have to know what happens next Ruso may be a reluctant investigator but he has that nagging voice in his head when things don t uite fit well and it keeps him following and digging for the truth Tilla has her own sense of fairness and views on what makes the world tickDownie locates each book in a different town mostly around Roman Britainwith only two exceptions She has clearly done her research for each location and they all come alive with the latest modern archaeological understanding of life there seeping through her writingWhat to be aware ofThese aren t the noir mysteries I normally read and recommend While there are certainly some gruesome bits did I mention gladiatorial combats these aren t your typical first person hard boiled detective Rather the stories are told in a lighter vein in third person perspective from either Ruso or Tilla s POV Happily Tilla gets page time as the series progressesMs Downie has experience with archaeology and Latin history and it shows in her writing She has elected to translate most Latin terms into modern English eg calling a master my lord rather then domine or using doctor for physician which may sound a tad weird to those used to Latin terms from similar seriesBe aware that while it s not strictly necessary to read the books in order it certainly helpsSummaryI absolutely love this
