Interesting mystery set in Ancient Rome between period of Sulla and Julius Caesar. Lots of details about Roman politics, religion and culture. I was not aware of the concept of hospitium until now. The actual mystery part was obvious ... everyone was guilty. The Romans loved conspiracies. The book written as a memoir of an aging public official. May read the next in the series in future. Rated C- [3 stars].

Next is a change-up. Bloodchild and Other Stories by Octavia E. Butler.
