Allmänna fakta



Lindsay Davis i Historical Mysteries (december 2015)


An excellent entry in this series featuring Marcus Didius Falco. We meet his father, finally, and learn about him and about Marcus's brother Festus, late of the Judean wars and not always the golden-haired boy everyone seems to think he was. The plot is complex but comprehensible, involving imports from Greece, the terrors of slavery, and with a few delightful twists at the end.

Marcus Didius Falco is an imperial agent on a mission to Germany in AD 71 to find a legion commander whose loyalty to the emperor may be suspect. His only support is a ragtag bunch of Roman recruits and they embittered centurion. Ahead lie the hordes of Celtic barbarians.

This is an excellent addition to the Falco series of murder mysteries set against the backdrop of imperial Rome. Here, Falco is despatched to the ends of the empire to save the emperor from possible rebellion. As always, Falco has that cynical, world-weary approach to life that makes him the most perceptive of detectives.

Davis writes extremely well - great plotting, strong characters and a narrative drive that makes reading a joy. Highly recommended.
