    " An early, entertaining Falco novel. Do check out at least the first few books in this series, they are quite entertaining. "

    " I am a confirmed fan of Lindsey Davis's likeable Roman detective Falco. and going back to read on of the early books didn't disappoint. Her characters are beautifully drawn and set in such a vividly drawn historical context that you are instantly transported. I love the way she draws subtly draws amusing parallels with modern day society. The story was well plotted and kept me reading along at a gallop. Another excellent Marcus Didius Falco Novel. If you have never read these novels don't be put off by the historical context. Just read one and you will be hooked, particularly if you like mystery thrillers. "

    " This series just gets better and better. Falco is hired by a family of freed slaves who thinks one of their members is being taken in by a gold digger who has a penchant for murdering her rich husbands. As usual, as Falco delves into his task, he finds much than meets the eye. Less than scrupulous landlords play center stage, and Helena finally makes an important decision regarding her relationship with Falco. I couldn't put this one down! "

    " I've learned you can rely on Lindsey Davis for an entertaining and informative read, and this series never seems to disappoint. This is the third of the Falco historical mystery series; Falco is an "informer" for the Emperor in first century Rome. This one deals with the activities of a "black widow" gold digger, and is particularly instructive on class issues and tensions in that culture, and the options and social status of freedmen who were once slaves.
