    " More skimmed, than abandoned, the only thing that made it a 1&1/2 or 2 star is my love of codes and riddles. But other than that.. A bit of a miss "

    " A review by Blake: Really good book! Loved the riddles. I solved two of them on my own. The anagram was really tricky, I had to find out the answer in the book. One of the best Roman Mysteries yet. I recommend this to mystery lovers. "
