Synopsis: Discover one of the world's favourite detectives, as his first case leads him into conspiracy, murder and adventure ...

In 1989 THE SILVER PIGS introduced the world to laid-back first-century detective Marcus Didius Falco, his partner Helena Justina, his law and order pal Petronius, and his indomitable Mother - who became some of the most celebrated characters in historical fiction.

Now reissued in a special new edition to celebrate publication of Falco's twentieth investigation, THE SILVER PIGS sees Falco cynically eyeing up the new Roman emperor, Vespasian. Our hero, a private informer, rescues a young girl in trouble and is catapulted into a dangerous game involving stolen imperial ingots, a dark political plot and, most hazardous of all, a senator's daughter connected to the traitors Falco has sworn to expose ...

Review: "Every book in this series is a delight ... fans will snap it up, highly recommended
Library Journal" (Library Journal)

"Davis is a prolific and popular writer ... Her research has been assiduous and detailed, her commitment to the subject is impressive, and the background detail is often eye-opening" (Hilary Mantel Observer)

"One of the best of the current writers in this field" (Donna Leon The Times)

"Surely the best historical detective in the business" (Mike Ripley Daily Telegraph)

"The whole thing is splendid. It has everything: mystery, pace wit, fascinating scholarship ... she brings imperial Rome to life" (Ellis Peters)
