In “The Alexandrian Cat,” a mischievous girl anda tell-tale sneeze reveal an ingenious plot of murder and thievery. In “The House of the Vestals,” blackmail goes horribly wrong, and there is no one to take the blame. These stories and more make up an engrossing collection of finely wrought mystery tales with all the suspense and craft that are the trademark of Saylor’s work.

What made the experience of listening to The House of the Vestals the most enjoyable?
The stories are well written and dense with historical detail
What didn’t you like about Ralph Cosham’s performance?
Mr. Cosham sounds like a 90 year old man. His voice is thick, hoarse and wavering. Gordianus is supposed to be a vigorous man in his late 30's, not an elderly, wheezing, nursing home patient. Also, Mr. Cosham CANNOT change is voice in any way to portray different characters. He sounds the same which ever character is speaking. Male, female, young, old, greek or roman- his voice never changes its quality.The only thing that kept me going were the interesting stories.
If you could rename The House of the Vestals, what would you call it?
A good bunch of stories almost rendered useless by a poor narration.
