Things are going well for Decius Caecilius Metellus He is Praetor Peregrinus His cases will be those dealing with foreigners and all of Italy is his province His first stop is Campa. In this tale in the SPR series Decius is Praetor Peregrinus which means he'll oversee judicial matters involving resident foreigners through the Italian pennisula In this particular book Decius is in the Bay of Naples along with his loyal freedman Hermes and family relatives Marcus in his praetorian retinue Also accompanying him is his wife Julia Minor and two of her friends Circe another Julia in the Julii clan and Antonia sister of Marcus Antonius known to modern audiences as Mark AntonyMost of the story takes place in Baiae a coastal town that is opulent and luxurious Decius is expecting a relaxing year in office as it's of a vacation with duty hours Soon enough Decius gets himself involved in murder investigation that soon gets out of hand with multiple murders all linked Cicero makes a cameo and his freedman Tiro gets to stand as lawyer in a court presided by DeciusI don't really want to think about how there are only 2 books in the series after this one JMR's Decius Caecilius Metellus has become a favorite character and I'm going miss him when I finish the series This story was fun with Decius constantly comparing Rome with the laidback coastal Bay of Naples and how even though they are Roman citizens he still views them as being foreigners since most of them are Greek than Roman He's also happy to be out of Rome so he doesn't have to listen to people constantly talk about Pompey and Caesar the civil war is fast approaching He's blissfully happy until well over halfway through the book they are finally mentionedThere's a good mystery in this one I didn't start to figure out whodunit until Decius himself started to suspect There is even some action seuences been bandits set upon Decius as he and some of his men are riding into town Overall a fun enjoying story in the SPR series

review Under Vesuvius

Under VesuviusNia Italy's most popular resort district Decius and his wife Julia are happy for a change of scenery But the good times end when in a town near Vesuvius a priest's daughter is murde. I am so sad this series is ending in only two books The characters are old friends If you like the Marcus Didius Falco books give this series a try It's not as overtly funny as Lindsay Davis' books but really well done
