After six months in wild Germania, imperial gumshoe Marcus Didius Falco is back in Rome sweet Rome—but his apartment has been ransacked. And although he desperately needs 400,000 sesterces in order to marry his aristocratic love, Helena, his only client is his mother, who insists that he find out whether the scandalous claims against his dead brother, Festus, are true.

Then the chief tarnisher of Festus’ good name is murdered, and Marcus becomes the prime suspect. Someone is definitely fiddling with the scales of justice. The more Marcus hunts for the thread that will lead him out of this doom-laden labyrinth of misery and mystery, the less his life is worth—except, as seems likely, as a meal for the emperor’s hungry lions.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Fast-moving, funny, and full of atmostphere; if you haven’t met Marcus Didius Falco before, start here.”

    Mail on Sunday

  • “Great stuff…A classic hard-boiled, smart-mouth detective who happens to live in ancient Rome.”

    Los Angeles Daily News

  • “A vividly realized imperial Rome—noisy, dense, and dangerous.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This entertaining series continues as Falco is challenged to locate both the art treasure hidden by his deceased brother as well as to clear his own name from a murder charge…The first-person narrative immediately draws readers into the story. Falco’s dry wit surfaces with puns and satirical asides, and the conversations are especially realistic.”

    Library Journal

  • “The latest installment in Davis’ creative series about the first-century Roman sleuth Marcus Didius Falco couldn’t be wittier or more vivid and charming…A thoroughly enjoyable romp.”
