Marcus Didius Falco discovers that rank brings problems, the most gruesome of which is a corpse buried under the tiles of his new bath house. The contractors have fled to Britain where, as the Fates have it, Falco is ordered. A local chief and ally of the Romans is having a Palace built by the Emperor Vespasian. However, the project is running late, and fatal accidents keep happening. Falco, troubleshooting for the Emperor, is without an ally and now next on the list for assassination.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hannah | 2/12/2014

    " TYpical Davis sense of humour. Enjoyable, although perhaps not the best, as the plot is thinner than others in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James Hare | 1/6/2014

    " This book is not very good. There are definitely series out there that deserve to be more than 5 or 6 books (Hill's Dalziel Pascoe comes to mind), this is not such a series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 B.R. Stateham | 1/4/2014

    " Always good to go back and re-read a favorite. If you haven't met 'Falco' you should. A genuinely interesting character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 12/24/2013

    " A bit of a muddle from the normally reliable Davis - the plot is missing her usual sharpness and urgency. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 11/13/2013

    " A good story but Petro showing up in the end with Maia's children was a little too contrived. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 11/3/2013

    " c2001: Can't believe I lost the first attempt at comments. Grrrrrr to GR! Not going through it again suffice to say that topic was good but plot not so much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexandra MacKenzie | 7/20/2013

    " Mystery set in ancient Rome. Good stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthiaj | 4/14/2013

    " I thought this one was a bit fractious although I liked Marcus having to return to Briton since he enjoys it so much. I guess I am used to mystery authors tying all the killings up together and Davis didn't feel constrained to do that in this book. Good for her, but.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith | 10/22/2012

    " "The Decline and Fall of Ancient Rome" was a bit hard going for me. Lindsey Davis's books about ancient Rome are fun because they give an insight into the minutiae of ancient Roman life, within the context of a very engaging story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cherie | 1/8/2012

    " A different story, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Marcus Didios is a investigator/assassin for the Roman Emporor. He was sent to Britain, and he took his family. He was to investigate the building of a palace. It was witty and funny and I would read another in the series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Hawes | 1/7/2012

    " The one at Fishbourne Palace with the dodgy workmen and the irritating nanny. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 7/15/2011

    " Felt the characters had little depth in this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Isabell | 5/9/2011

    " Both the story and the narration were OK. Nothing special, but not too bad, either. The narrator was quite stiff and my mom commented that he sounded as though he was reading the news, with which she is probably right. "
