9780099515050: The Silver Pigs: (Falco 1)

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

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 ...
