We also have a glimpse of Seneca and Emperor Nero whom Ray portrays in a realistic fashion. Set in Ancient Rome during the time of emperor Nero in A. By his actions in the Senate and in public life, he exemplified a man of honour and convictions, often going against the status quo in favour of principles. Mysteries don't interest me that much, generally, but I've always liked Lindsey Davis's Falco books.

Yet the slave list has been neglected and so, no one is aware that two of the slaves are missing. She glosses over every single meeting with her parents, and that's frustrating at first, but eventually I began to understand. But I guess I can recommend someone to read his book.

The kalends were the day for payment of debts and the account books kalendaria kept for them gave English its word calendar. Clearly Davis has decided that Falco needs to be put in the background to let Flavia shine. It did seem like the author just wanted to add some unnecessary parts into the book to make it longer.
