In the first century AD, during Domitian’s reign, Flavia Albia is ready for a short break from her family. So, in July, she returns to Rome, leaving them at their place on the coast. Albia, daughter of Marcus Didius Falco, who is now retired as private informer, has taken up her father’s former profession, and it’s time to get back to work. The first order of business, however, is the corpse found in a chest sent as part of a large lot to be sold by the Falco family auction house. As the senior family representative in Rome, it falls upon Albia to find out who, why, and by whom.

At the same time, her potential suitor, Faustus, comes looking for help with his friend Sextus’ political campaign. Between the auction business and Roman politics, it’s not quite clear which is more underhanded. Both, however, are tied together by the mysterious body in the chest, and if Albia isn’t able to solve that mystery, it won’t be the only body to drop.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Entertaining…Davis…does her usual smooth job of educating readers with historical tidbits (e.g., explaining that the word candidate derives from the word white, because those seeking elected office wore robes whitened with chalk).”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “As always, Davis vividly paints an ancient Rome full of grandiose architecture and ominous dark alleyways in the sweltering summer heat. Her characters are equally well designed, with distinct personalities that complement the winding mystery.”

    Library Journal

  • “Flavia Albia, daughter of Roman investigator Marcus Didius Falco (star of Davis’ long-running mystery series), continues to build her reputation as an investigator in her own right…Flavia isn’t a Marcus clone; she shares some of her father’s traits (especially his ingratiating sense of humor and his persistence in the face of overwhelming odds), but she’s her own person and quite an interesting one, too…A fine book.”

    Booklist

  • “In ancient Rome, elections can be murder…Flavia’s third case benefits from the heroine’s combination of archness and vulnerability and the author’s deep knowledge of the period.”
