Ruso and the disappearing dancing girls

one of my oddities is a love of reading historical mystery novels, particularly ones set in the Roman period. (I once used to be a regular contributor to the Detective and the Toga, which possibly says something about me ...)

Well I've just finished Ruso and the Disappearing Dancing girls by Ruth Downie and it was good, very good. Got the same rush that I got when I first happened across the Silver Pigs by Lindsey Davis in the late lamented Murder One bookstore in London twelve or so years ago.

Try it - if you like early Falco novels you'll like this one ...

PS if you live in Australia or New Zealand order from the excellent Bookdepository - much cheaper than Amazon and excellent service
