This book was a solid 3 stars for me I liked the MC Gordianus and the way he goes about solving the latest mystery He is perfectly likable I also liked Cassandra s role and the way she was described I also liked the title and how it fit the story line nicely This book however moved a little slow in the middlethere was a lot of interviewing going on That s not my favorite when it takes up a chunk of the plot
