The Lydian Baker is the first independent Corvinus mystery in that Wishart isn t covering specific historical events but a general investigative mysteryWhat to ExpectLiving in Athens Corvinus is whiling his time away from the dangerous politics of Rome He gets dragged into running an errand for his stepfather and gets embroiled in the literally cut throat antiue trade Expect the usual Corvinus style with plenty of twists theories and the occasional bash on the head as Marcus tries to locate an ancient stolen treasureAlthough this is book 4 of the series and there is some continuity from past books recurring characters because events are not related to the previous three novels it can form a good entry point to the seriesWhat I likedAgain Wishart s research of the period is top notch as usual Athens under Roman rule was an interesting place no longer the Athenian heyday but still vibrant Wishart depicts the dual snobbery and reliance of Athenians on the Roman ruling class from philosophers to dockhands The mystery itself is on a small scale with thankfully a smaller cast of characters then the previous novels though it harkens back to legends 600 years back two and half millenia go that still thrill history loversWishart knowingly diverges from the common view on some of those real events for the sake of the story as he notes in the afterword but as he doesn t contradict the main facts it just makes for a pleasant interpretation for a rich backgroundStylistically Wishart uses a modern language to bring the characters to life He s also using a time honoured trope of representing the Roman patriarchy similar to British aristocracy The result is a novel that reads as a cross between Sam Spade and Downton Abbey on a backdrop of ancient Rome It makes for very enjoyable reading for lovers of those genres What to be aware ofThough Wishart s prose is excellent he avoids all Latin and Greek terms to the point where it s a bit much like referring to a toga
