His learning shines through. He has a feel for ancient times yet uses modern dialogue. This neat trick manages to combine the atmosphere of the ancient world while moving the story quickly and assuredly on. Highly recommended * Yorkshire Evening Post * With the toga-wearing sleuths of Lindsey Davis an dSteven Saylor prowling the alleys of Ancient Rome, is there room for Wishart's Marcus Corvinus? On this evidence the answer is resoundingly in the affirmative. * Times * A taut thriller in which ancient Rome springs to life * The Times * David Wishart wields an entertaining stylus ... a terrific book to hole up with for the holidays * Scotland on Sunday * I'll certainly be chasing up the previous Marcus Corvinus novels ... These are unusual detective tales * Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph * A classical crime caper out of the top drawer. * Steve Craggs, Northern Echo * Innate humour and pace * Irish Times * Wishart writes economically and with pace * Nairnshire Telegraph * 'A deft murder mystery written in wise-cracking style. Marcus Corvinus is a persuasively likeable lad.' Huddersfield Daily Examiner Wishart takes true historical events and blends them into a concoction so pacy that you hardly notice all those facts and interesting details of Roman life being slipped in there. Salve! To this latest from the top toga-wearing 'tec of Roman times! * Highland News Group *
