    One thought on “Caesar Dies”

    1. What's not to like about Talbot Mundy? I have yet to read a book by him that I didn't enjoy. Caesar Dies is no different. Having it on my Kindle made it easy for me to check names and places. It appears to be an historical novel. Many of the characters were real people, and Mundy's knowledge of places the ancient world is astonishing. If nothing else, Caesar Dies gives one a glimpse into Roman plotting and sub-plotting, espionage and counter-espionage. It's also a great romp through the palaces [...]

    2. Thoroughly enjoyed this, from the first line "Golden Antioch lay like a jewel at a mountain's throat". Mundy evokes the setting, the chaos of the city, the atmosphere under tyranny.

    3. A very dark tale of intrigue, backstabbing, greed, ambition, hate, & madness set in ancient Rome. There really was no redeeming quality to this book. To much time spent on the depravity of the culture. At the end of the book, all of the characters all learn that they are completely self-serving even to the point of murder. I wouldn't recommend anyone read it.
