In the high summer of 77 AD, Roman informer Marcus Didius Falco is beset by personal problems. A middle-aged couple who supplied statues to his father has disappeared. They had an old feud with a bunch of notorious freedmen, the Claudii, who terrorize the neighborhood. When a mutilated corpse turns up, Falco and his friend Petronius investigate. But just as they are making progress, the chief spy, Anacrites, snatches the case away. He makes false overtures of friendship, but fails to cover up the fact that the Claudii have acquired corrupt protection at the highest level. Falco and Petronius dig deeper while the shocking truth creeps closer and closer to home.

Listener Opinions

    " This is her last Falco book. Sigh! "

    " One of my favorite book series. Marcus Didius Falco is an investigator (sort of a classical Sam Spade) in ancient Rome. Well-researched, Falco's investigations give a slice-of-life realism, that takes you from the mightiest emperor to the lowliest slave. In this book, he offs his arch-enemy, the cheif spy Anicrites, who has tried to return the favor in many previous books. "

    " I think that this is one of her best - loved it! "

    " I've read many, but not all, of the Falco novels. In general I find Gordianus (Steven Saylor) to be more true to the ethos of the roman period, but Falco is a lot of fun. That said, some of Davis' novels are more successful than others, and this is one of the best of them. Lots of good meta-plot development with Falco's family, as well as a rather intriguing mystery involving the Pontine marshes and some of his old sparring partners. One of the best in the series, and certainly one of the better recent ones. "
