    Great As Always

    This series of books is really exceptional and The Jupiter Myth is no exception. The only drawback is that you find yourself living from one to another.

    deep look into first century Britannia

    In 75 AD, accompanied by his extended family, Roman auditor Marcus Didius Falco visits Londinium to see his wife¿s aunt and uncle, the Procurator Gaius Flavius Hilaris, second in command of Britain. When a prominent British courtier Verovolcus drowns in a tavern well, Governor Frontinus sends Falco, known for his sleuthing skills, to investigate. <P>Falco realizes that the victim was close to exiled King Togidubnus. Thus the case is politically sensitive. Not long afterward, Petronius Longinus vanishes. Soon. Falco meets an old girlfriend, gladiator Chloris now known as Amazonia. She wants to renew all aspects of their relationship, but he only offers to help her with her battle against mob control of her gladiatorial troupe. <P>Placing the tale in Londinium freshens up this long running Ancient Rome (and now Ancient London) mystery series. Falco is a great character struggling between solving a difficult case and keeping Chloris from pinning him to a mattress as he wants to forget her other skills and remain happily married. Readers will receive plenty of insight into Falco¿s family and much depth into first century Britannia. THE JUPITER MYTH will please fans of the series and attract newcomers as Lindsey Davis provides a deep look back in time. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Falco and Helena are still in London (Londinium)

    The action in this book occurs right after the last book. Falco and his Helena are still in Britain and are visiting Helena's relation in Londinium. While they are in residence, an acquaintance of Falco's is found dead upside down in a well. The Governor asks Falco to investigate since the victim was a well-known adjunct from the King of Britain's court. Falco and Petronius, while investigating this murder are thrown into the criminal underworld that is alive and flourishing in this still backward town. We meet some old friends and enemies in this book, and Falco and Petronius get into some real scrapes as they chase the bad guys. Even Falco's sister Maia becomes embroiled in this mess. Also, like in other Lindsey Davis books, we learn a lot about the history of that time. She gives us a pretty good picture of what Roman London looked like, and we see the whole fascinating world of the female gladiator as well. I can't wait until the new book comes out this year as I have finally caught up in the series
