You can read book Scorpion Rising by Marilyn Todd in our library for absolutely free. Unlike the bathhouses Claudia was accustomed to, this was no stone-built complex of steam rooms, promenades and gymnasia. No works of art hung on its walls, no statues lined its entrance, no attendants wafted round with wine and sweetmeats. Indeed, there was little to differentiate the Hall from the rest of the rectangular, windowless, single-roomed buildings within the sacred precinct apart from the hyssop that decked the lintel for purification.

Marilyn Todd's fast paced historical murder mysteries set in the time of Ancient Rome and featuring the beautiful Claudia Seferius are growing in popularity and the author is up there with the David Wishart's, Steven Saylor& not forgetting the Lindsey Davis's of the book world. Perhaps to have a woman and an alluring one at that, rather than a man as the sleuth and lead character is a stroke of genius on Todd's part.

Another romp through the Ancient Roman world. Claudia is wonderful.

Some crimes are easy to solve. This isn’t one of them.

One of the things I appreciate the most about Ms. Todd’s writing style is how much detail she packs into her books, and this one was no exception to that rule. From the cut of the characters’ clothing to the types of tools they used in their daily lives, nothing was too ordinary to be included in this mystery. Because of this I could perfectly imagine every scene playing out in my mind. The author’s descriptions were simply that vivid and well done!

The cast of characters was so large that I sometimes had trouble keeping track of who everyone was and where they came from. This was especially noticeable when it came to the characters that were being introduced for the first time in this story. There were simply so many new faces that I had a hard time keeping all of them straight. It would have been really helpful to have some sort of master list of who everyone was so that I could refresh my memory from time to time.

With that being said, the storyline itself was captivating. I read this tale much faster than I normally would have because I was so interested in seeing if Claudia was piecing together the clues the same way I was and if either one of us would figure all of them out before her time ran out. There were so many different factors to consider that I could have spent much more time than I did coming up with all of my possible interpretations of what happened to the little girl whose death Claudia was trying to unravel. The entire mystery was really well done.

This book is part of a series, but it can be read on its own or out of order.

I’d recommend Scorpion Rising to anyone who is in the mood for a challenge.

Marilyn Todd's fast paced historical murder mysteries set in the time of Ancient Rome and featuring the beautiful Claudia Seferius are growing in popularity and the author is up there with the David Wishart's, Steven Saylor`s, not forgetting the Lindsey Davis's of the book world. Perhaps to have a woman and an alluring one at that, rather than a man as the sleuth and lead character is a stroke of genius on Todd's part.

Claudia Seferius has now become an accomplished wine merchant after taking over the business when her husband died, despite his family openly making it known that they should have the business and not her. But now she has done the unthinkable as far as respectable business goes. She has taken payment from a customer but kept the wine he purchased to sell again. Not a good idea as the irate customer nicknamed the Scorpion has sent a hit man to kill the beautiful Claudia.

However, there is a way out for Claudia. The hit man delivers an alternative that Claudia finds more attractive than lying in a pool of blood, or worse. If she can find out who killed his daughter, he will allow Claudia to live. Simple, all Claudia has to do is infiltrate a house, where a matriarchal cut worship nature, keep men as sex slaves and communicate through sign language and then find out who killed the girl. While on the case she is surprised to find her old sparring partner Marcus Orbilio, already at work undercover trying to expose a gang of criminals.
