The Falco series is my favorite mystery series ever - kind of Sam Spade in Ancient Rome. Clever, especially if you enjoyed Ancient History class.

I very much like Lindsey Davis as an author. Historically researched but the history only has a minimal impact on the story.

In this book, Falco stays in Rome and meets up with some very dangerous criminals. Lots of fighting and danger, friendships hanging on by a thread, and new emotions with Helena.

Light reading, but very interesting about how the ancient Romans lived and conducted business set in with a mystery or two!

I just finished reading this book. We're back again in Rome, which is my favorite setting, as we get to meet again old friends and enemies of Falco. I feel it is important to read all the books in order, otherwise you may miss an important development in the relationships among the various characters. The Roman *police* was a fascinating topic to learn about. I found it interesting that the vigiles were supposed to be unarmed, just like the British "bobbies" before the 1970s. However, I got confused, because Petronius carries a sword. I will have to research this some more. Each new book makes me want to dig deeper into historical research.
