Clearly too tough to be contained by a puny padded envelope, yesterday,
Agent of Rome: The Black Stone by Nick Brown landed in a welter of blood and corpses on my doormat.
OK, Parcel Postie knocked politely on the door and gave it to me.
But once inside the house, the book fought its way out of the envelope and demanded, at the point of a Roman-type sword, I read it.
Who am I to argue with a book as tough as that?
