In first-century-AD Rome, during the reign of Vespasian, Marcus Didius Falco works as a private “informer,” often for the emperor, ferreting out hidden truths and bringing villains to ground. But even informers take vacations with their wives, so in AD 77, Falco and his wife, Helena Justina, with others in tow, travel to Alexandria, Egypt. But they aren’t there long before Falco finds himself in the midst of nefarious doings—when the librarian of the Great Library is found dead, under suspicious circumstances. Falco quickly finds himself on the trail of dodgy doings, malfeasance, deadly professional rivalry, more bodies, and the lowest of the low—book thieves! As the bodies pile up, it’s up to Falco to untangle this horrible mess and restore order to a disordered universe.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The twisty plot with its various false leads and the author’s plausible depiction of ancient Alexandria make this one of the stronger entries in this solid historical series.” Publishers Weekly
“What makes Davis’ long-standing series so indelible is the expert blend of Falco’s wisecracking observations and crazy family life with some masterly suspense…The mystery is intricately plotted, the characters are well drawn, and Falco is as engaging a protagonist as ever, still tough but wiser and more reflective, too.” Library Journal
“The period detail is interesting; the characters, both main and secondary, are fully fleshed out.” School Library Journal
