Exciting background, predictable plot
am 9. April 2006
With Vesuvius exploding in the background you have an exciting story to tell right there. Harris tells his story well, concentrates on a selected cast of somewhat predictable characters - the good guy, the bad guy, the inevitable love story which wasn't needed to add spice and it doesn't - and tells his story from the perspective of the aqueduct overseer who is called because there is some trouble with the waterflow. He discovers corruption and a beautiful girl. The bad guys and some of the good guys perish but the lovebirds survive against all possible odds. Oh well. It is nice and easy to read but really doesn't leave much of a lasting impression.
