I enjoyed this story and the different personalities of the Cicero brothers. It's hard to say how much of the mystery was a surprise (I started to figure it out partway through) as I've studied Cicero and also read the novel Roman Blood by Steven Saylor, based on the same case.
Two things they got wrong: the name Pulcher is not pronounced with a ch sound but a hard c. Also, Falernian was quite an exspensive and prestigous wine, Trimalchio serves it in the Satyricon.
Favorite quotes: "You're blaming the murder on Sophocles?" and "Maybe someone forgot to put a line over the M's."
Favorite scene, where Quintus gives Marcus some writing and oratory tips.
Will be thinking about this in a few weeks when we cover Sulla's dictatorship and the proscriptions.
Great performances, I hope they make more!
