I too felt that the [spoiler] at the end of Nemesis came rather out of left field. I guess you can argue that what spoiler was doing in that book was worse than anything before, or that it was a last straw situation. And it's true that 2000 years ago that sort of thing was more of an option than it is today. But from a 21st century perspective, having spoiler do THAT is a big deal. And it kind of ruins the reader's relationship with spoiler. I'm glad she doesn't seem to be interested in writing any more Marcus Didius Falco books, because I'm not sure I'm interested in reading them.

I did really enjoy the first part of the book though - painful, but good.
