 Shadows in Bronze is the second book in Lindsey Davis' bestselling Falco series.

Rome, AD 71.

     Against his better judgement, Marcus Didius Falco secretly disposes of a decayed corpse for the Emperor Vespasian, then heads for the beautiful Bay of Naples with his best friend Petronius. He conveniently forgets to mention to his companion that this will be no holiday. They have been sent to investigate the murderous members of a failed coup, now sunning themselves in luxurious villas and on fancy yachts.

     Nor does the idyllic seaside location help his doomed romance with Helena Justina. The deeper he probes, the more it seems Helena is inextricably connected to the elite plotters, in ways that the smitten Falco cannot bear to contemplate...

From the Back Cover:

"Friends, Romans, countrymen... welcome back to the world of ancient Rome in Lindsey Davis' s thoroughly enjoyable, award-winning series."

DEATH TO THE EMPEROR!

It' s the first century A.D. and Marcus Didius Falco, Ancient Rome' s favorite son and sometime palace spy, has just been dealt a lousy blow from the gods: The beautiful, high-born Helena Justina has left him in the dust. So when the Emperor Vespasian calls upon him to investigate an act of treason, Falco is more than ready for a distraction. Disguised as an idle vacationer in the company of his best friend Petronius, Falco travels from the Isle of Capreae to Neapolis and all the way to the great city of Pompeii... where a whole new series of Herculean events-- involving yet another conspiracy, and a fateful meeting with his beloved Helena-- are about to erupt... .

" Davis mixes Modern sensibility [and] fascinating historical detail." -- "Chicago"" Tribune"

" Knockabout adventure." -- "Kirkus Reviews"

From the Inside Flap:

"I haven't read historical fiction this good since I, CLAUDIUS by Robert Graves and PERSIAN BOY by Mary Renault--and this is a lot funnier."
DETROIT FREE PRESS
He's Rome's favorite son, and of late, Emperor Vespasian's favorite palace spy, charged with finding the culprits who are plotting his imperial demise. In the meanwhile, Marcus Didius Falco has unfinished business with one citizen, Helen Justina, a high-born beauty he has given his heart to. And at these wages, his heart is all he can afford to render unto her--which causes its own problems.
The second in Lindsey Davis' Ancient Rome detective series.
