Lindsey Davis continues her tale of Roman PI Falco in this twisty mystery set in first century AD Rome and surrounding areas. Falco is still living a lowdown life, as informers do, even though he has started a love affair with the higher status Helena Justina, a senator's daughter. The palace sends him looking to reel in a couple of brothers who had involved themselves in a failed plot to take down the new Emperor Vespasian and now have gone AWOL (senators are not allowed to absent themselves from their duties in Rome without the emperor's permission). Falco goes undercover as a lead pipe salesman in Herculaneum and finds himself up against the noble Helena's murdered ex-husband (or is he?)and an on-going plot to rid the Empire of Vespasian. Lots of interesting backstory and historical details, and a really gripping ending. Highly recommended.

SHADOWS IN BRONZE is a great puzzle that will keep you guessing unti the end. Marcus Didius Falco is on the hunt for a missing heir, and possible killer. Also in the mix, a plot involving the Egyptian grain shipments and a couple would be emperors. Falco sets out on holiday with Petronius Longus, while searching the countryside. He meets up with Helena Justina, also on vacation. A tour of the Campania countryside, with side trips to Pompeii, Naples, and other fun spots. Falco has his work cut out for him. A great mystery, and a great detective. Highly Recommended!

I will admit, I am totally hooked on Marcus Didius Falco! I find the books fast paced and easy to read with interesting characters and story lines. I especially enjoy the relationship between Helena Justina and Marcus. The ancient Rome setting works and really plays to my college classical studies minor ;)
