I like Davis a little more and Maddox Roberts a lot more than Doherty, as far as historicals go, but still quite like the Egyptian and Macedonian Doherty titles I have read.

As far as Roman historials, I also adore David Wishart's books (especially the ones he calls "political", which have more historical background in them than the "normal" ones; Wishart does have a distinctive style which folks tend to either love or hate), and quite like Rosemary Rowe, Jane Finnis, and Ruth Downie (love Tilla). So maybe if you can't get Maddox Roberts in the UK, some of these are available <grin>.

I've read a few of his works but have to say I prefer Lindsey Davis (waiting for a price drop on 11-20 of Falco), John Maddox Roberts (why aren't SPQR available in the UK?) and Stephen Saylor.

I tried Wishart a while back and found the historical inaccuracies enough to put me off trying him again. This was several years back so matters may have improved since then but I have enough on the Kindle app alone to keep me busy for months.

I can get hard copies of Maddox Roberts, but not any of the SPQR ebooks (only the Hannibal's Children duology and the Dragonlance (?) he wrote). Makes me consider piracy...

FYI for those who "travel" - the original (Canadian/UK) title is The murder stone

So did I, I've read a couple stand alone books by Dorerty and like them. Nice way to try out the Hugh Corbett series.

Thanks Sufue
