About this title

Synopsis:

Following "The Silver Pigs", Lindsey Davis' first novel featuring Marcus Didius Falco, the Roman private detective now takes to the streets of ancient Rome once again, on a mission for the Emperor Vespasian. He follows a trail to Mount Vesuvius and re-encounters his lost love Helena.

From the Back Cover:

Friends, Romans, countrymen...welcome back to the world of ancient Rome in Lindsey Davis's thoroughly enjoyable, award-winning series.
 
DEATH TO THE EMPEROR!
 
It's the first century A.D. and Marcus Didius Falco, Ancient Rome's favorite son and sometime palace spy, has just been dealt a lousy blow from the gods: The beautiful, high-born Helena Justina has left him in the dust. So when the Emperor Vespasian calls upon him to investigate an act of treason, Falco is more than ready for a distraction. Disguised as an idle vacationer in the company of his best friend Petronius, Falco travels from the Isle of Capreae to Neapolis and all the way to the great city of Pompeii...where a whole new series of Herculean events--involving yet another conspiracy, and a fateful  meeting with his beloved Helena--are about to erupt....
