Available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble Mr Gompertz was winner of an Amazon new writer's contest. It is the very funny story of the new governor of Hispania arriving to find his Legions have been transferred to Britania to build Hadrian's wall, the taxpayers in open revolt (and smellnig too)while bribery, blackmail and murder remain the principle paths to power. Delightfully evil in it's dark humor and wittily Woodhousian in dialogue and prose, I couldn't put it down. An excellent first effort and worth the time to read. NOT for the stitch nazi or musculata policeman, never the less it is a wonderfully detailed romp through third Century Roman provincial life! Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin
