Writer Andrew Taylor about new crime fiction novels by his colleagues Philip Kerr, Imogen Robertson, Lindsey Davis and Sophie Hannah. His reviews at The Spectator.
»The plot itself is taut and deftly woven. Its inspiration derives from the historian Dio Cassius, who reported how, in the reign of Domitian, „some persons made a business of smearing needles with poison and then pricking with them whomsoever they would“. Inevitably, it falls to Albia to identify the serial killer.«
Writer Tom Holland about the historical crime fiction novel The Ides of April by Lindsey Davis. His review at The Guardian.
»Sudden death in ancient Rome – there was a lot of it about. Thank the gods!«
