9780099515197: The Jupiter Myth: (Falco 14)

‘To find a drowned man head-first down a well was slightly unusual, exciting maybe.’

For Falco, a relaxed visit to Helena’s relatives in Britain turns serious at the scene of a downtown murder. The renegade henchman of Rome’s vital ally King Togidubnus has been stuffed head-first down a barroom well – leading to a tricky diplomatic situation which Falco must defuse. One murder leads to others. Londinium now has a forum and an amphitheatre; the town is a magnet for legitimate traders – and for criminals from Rome.

With his vigiles pal Petronius, Falco leads the hunt for gangsters who are intent on taking over. This will bring unwelcome encounters with faces from the past and grave threats to their present relationships. Danger and death lurk throughout their pursuit, all the way from the brand new wharves beside the River Thames to the familiar old haunts of organised crime back home in Italy.

"Modern, exciting and plausible." ( Sunday Times)

"As always, Davis weaves a plot full of humour, surprises and domestic irony." ( TLS)

From the Publisher:

Lindsey Davis' fourteenth novel in the bestselling Marcus Didius Falco series is a Londinium noir tale of gangsters, gladiators and love…
