This book was a quick read! My father introduced me to the medieval mystery genre (which I really enjoy) with the Brother Cadfael series of books, and this one was very similar, with a main character of Sister Fidelma. She's an Irish sister in Rome, where women's rights are worlds apart. The mystery was well put together, with many twists and turns along the way. I had so many theories going, I couldn't keep them straight, and none of them encompassed the eventual solution! Luckily, the solution fell in with the storyline, and wasn't something that felt like it was pulled out of thin air. Overall, a good book.
