Nobody was poisoned at the dinner for the Society of Olive Oil Producers of Baetica, though in retrospect this was quite a surprise…
Inimitable detective Marcus Didius Falco is back with a vengeance. Muggings, occur, a man is killed and Rome's answer to Phillip Marlowe is plunged into the fiercely competitive world of olive oil-production. Political intrigue, an exotic Spanish dancer and impending fatherhood, all add to Falco's troubles.
