Marcus Didius Falco is a cynical, hard-boiled investigator from the
rough end of Rome. He does a bit of everything, from political
investigating to art-fraud work. But he never seems to make enough
money to move his family out of a seedy tenement. But fresh from
his adventure in Two for the Lions in North Africa, he finds new
respectability. His efforts are rewarded when he is appointed to a
post in the religious hierarchy of government cults and becomes
keeper of the city's sacred geese. Now Falco wants nothing more
than to spend time relaxing at home. But all too soon he finds
himself caught up in the murder of a member of one of the sacred
brotherhoods and the disappearance of the most likely new candidate
for the Order of Vestal Virgins. Lindsey Davis's look at the
complexities of Roman society and attitudes has rarely been so
impressively on display as in this engrossing historical mystery.
