Synopsis: The Silver Pigs is the first book in Lindsey Davis' bestselling Falco series.
 
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.
