    A good yarn spoilt

    When one buys ebooks from as reputable a dealer as Kobo one expects the production values to be high and the text accurate. Sadly, this is not the case with this book. It is riddled with proofing errors of an egregious nature - on average, two per page. The word "litter", for example, is variously misrepresented as "fitter" and "lifter", and there are a lot of other words that are mangled almost beyond recognition. The book has obviously been scanned but not properly proof-read. If the reader can get past this appallingly unprofessional lapse in quality on Kobo' s part, the book itself is very seductive. While the plot is no more than that of an ordinarily good detective story, Saylor's ability to create a convincing and rich portrayal of everyday Ancient Rome, weaving together history and mystery, is outstanding. His characters may lack depth, but the character of his setting - the city of Rome - more than makes up for them. If you're wondering why some people get quite obsessed with Ancient Rome, a good starting point would be the Finder novels.
