9780099515142: A Dying Light In Corduba: (Falco 8)

'Nobody was poisoned at the dinner for the Society of Oliver Oil Producers of Baetica, though in retrospect this was quite a surprise.'

Inimitable sleuth Falco is back with a vengeance. On one night, a man is killed and Rome’s Chief Spy left for dead. This leaves no one except Falco to conduct the investigation.

Soon he is plunged into the fiercely competitive world of olive oil production. Political intrigue, an exotic Spanish dancer and impending fatherhood all add to Falco’s troubles.

Review:

"With the passing of Ellis Peters, the title Queen of the Historical Whodunnit is temporarily vacant. Lindsey Davis is well suited to assume it - and she is funnier than Peters ... Davis' books make old Rome sound fun ... it is all so enjoyable" ( The Times)

"The cast of characters is as various, corrupt, nasty and gnarled as the best of Dickens, described with similar scope and loving attention" ( Mail on Sunday)

"Highly readable, funny and colourful." ( TLS)

"Splendid ... mystery, pace and wit"

"Lindsey Davis doesn't merely make history come alive - she turns it into spanking entertainment, and wraps it around an intriguing mystery. She is incapable of writing a dull sentence"

Book Description:

One of the Roman novels from the bestselling historical fiction Falco series
