I can think of worse ways to pass the time' -- ***** Reader review'This series is just SO addictive!' -- ***** Reader review'I just could not put it down' -- ***** Reader review'Engrossing' -- ***** Reader review********************************************************************************A NEW EMPEROR SEEKS AN EXPERIENCED AGENTMarcus Didius Falco is a private informer, the closest thing that first-century Rome has to a detective. A new emperor, Vespasian, has ascended to power. The tides of money and power are in flux, and Rome's vicious games swirl more ferociously than ever. When Falco rescues a young girl in trouble, he catapults himself into a dangerous game involving stolen imperial ingots, a dark political plot and, most hazardous of all, a senator's daughter connected to the traitors Falco has sworn to expose. The rule of law is tenuous for ordinary citizens of Rome.

Only a man with a mind as sharp as a gladius can prevail.
