Booklist Review: "Thrilling horse racing is at the center of this twelfth installment in the Roman Mysteries series. While visiting Rome, young friends Flavia, Jonathan, Nubia, and Lupus help an orphan find a job in a stable and become embroiled in intrigues surrounding high-stakes chariot races. Magical curses, disguised identities, and extrasensory visions deepen the heart-pounding action, which begins without much background scene-setting, making this a better choice for readers who know the series. As always, Lawrence's classical-world details are vivid and fascinating; this title includes a map of ancient Rome, a diagram of a chariot and the Circus Mazimus, and a full glossary.--Engberg, Gillian Copyright 2007 Booklist"
