Caroline Lawrence's Roman Mysteries series is brought to its dramatic conclusion...This 17-book epic makes ancient classic stories accessible and exciting. I think the whole package is a tremendous achievement and sure to bring in a whole new readership - CHILDREN'S BOOKSELLER on The Man from Pomegranate Street Caroline has taken the reader from Enid Blyton to Mills & Boon in seventeen steps, and I mean that in the best possible way. Few authors claim to have been inspired by romantic fiction, whereas many crime writers do mention Blyton as an early inspiration. Add a good dollop of history, and you ve got the whole series of the Roman Mysteries. Personally I have learnt a lot about the brief period that the books cover, and I was never one for Roman Emperors - BOOKWITCH on The Man from Pomegranate StreetLawrence steers this story and the series to a romantic and irresistably weepy conclusion, and, like so many good endings, it involves breathless reunions, a journey and a wedding (I mustn't reveal anymore...) - INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY on The Man from Pomegranate Street
