Returning to Rome after his mission to Germania, Falco finds that his mother is being harassed by a centurion named Censorinus, who says he is chasing a debt owed to him by Falco's brother Festus. Censorinus claims that Festus was involved in a syndicate, shipping valuable statues from Greece - and that even when his ship sunk; Festus had guaranteed that everyone in the group would get their money back.

Now, however, Festus is dead, and Falco knows he didn't leave a legacy. When Falco refuses to cough up any money, he and Censorinus end up fighting... and later, the centurion turns up dead. Under suspicion of murder, Falco must confront his past and uncover his brother's secrets before he can clear his name and solve the mystery.

Following on from BBC Radio 4's hugely successful dramatisations of The Silver Pigs, Shadows in Bronze, Venus in Copper and The Iron Hand of Mars, this funny and fast-moving fifth story starring Anton Lesser, Anna Madeley, and Trevor Peacock is a treat for all Falco fans.

    " Davis crafts wonderfully believable familial relationships, and they're definitely the high point of this one. "

    " I enjoy the Falco mysteries, especially how well the characters are drawn and how well Davis has melded in her extensive knowledge the Roman World of that time without making the book feel like a history lesson. However, this story did not engage me as much as the others I've read. it wasn't boring, jsut not as fascinating as some of the others. "

    " Fifth in this series set in a well researched first century Rome. This mystery involves discovering whatever became of a statue that Falco's deceased older brother seems to have lost in a major swindle attempt just before he died in a battle in faroff Judea. There is at least one murder connected to this intrigue, and because Falco's extended family is now directly threatened by those claiming recompense both for the buying and the selling of this lost artifact, he must put aside the issues he has with his estranged father, a lively personable scoundrel quite a bit like Falco himself, and learn to work with him as a team. Davis never disappoints if you're looking for endearing characters in historical fiction that vividly entertains even as it painlessly instructs us so much about that earlier society and culture. "
