Synopsis: Rome. AD 70. Private eye Marcus Didius Falco knows his way around the eternal city. He can handle the muggers, the police and most of the girls. But one fresh sixteen-year-old, Sosia Camillina, finds him a case no Roman should be getting his nose into. Some friends, Romans and countrymen are doing a highly profitable, if highly illegal, trade in silver ingots or pigs. For Falco it's the start of a murderous trail that leads far beyond the seven hills — to a godforsaken land called Britain, to Emperor Vespasian himself, and to Helena Justina – a lady leagues out of Falco’s class.

From the Publisher: Lindsey Davis' books manage to invoke a film noir atmosphere in Ancient Rome, which if you think about it is not so far from 1930s California -- a lot of sunshine on the surface with something much darker underneath. Her hero (and I use the term lightly) is Marcus Didius Falco, who becomes a private eye for the Emperor. In SILVER PIGS, the first book in the series, we are introduced to Falco's mother and the rest of his family -- along with a group of high-born Romans. Davis never loses the sense that we are in a very different time and place, but the personal relationships and situations that Falco gets himself into are timeless.

Amelia Zalcman: Director, Contracts Administration
