‘I was just a freelance hero doing his best in a hard world.’

The spirit of adventure calls Falco on a new spying mission for the Emperor Vespasian to the untamed East. He’s picking up extra fees from his old friend Thalia the snake dancer as he searches for Sophrona, her lost water organist. With the Chief Spy Anacrites paying his fare, Falco knows anything can go wrong.

Here they join a travelling theatre group, which keeps losing members in non-accidental drownings. The bad acting and poor audiences are almost as bad as the desert and its scorpions – then as the killer hovers, Falco tries to write a play…
