9780099515227: The Accusers: A Marcus Didius Falco Novel

The Accusers is the fifteenth book in Lindsey Davis' Falco series.  

   Fresh from his trip to Britain, Marcus Didius Falco needs to re-establish his presence in Rome. A minor role in the trial of a senator entangles him in the machinations of Silius Italicus and Paccius Africanus -- two lawyers at the top of their trade. These notorious ex-consults play a dangerous game, where success brings rich pickings but a mistrial or wrong verdict entails huge financial penalties.

     The senator is convicted but then dies, apparently by suicide. It may be a legal move to protect his heirs, but Silius hires Falco to prove it was murder. As Falco shows off his talents in the role of advocate, he exposes himself to powerful elements in Roman law: offending the wrong people may lead to charges he has not bargained for, in a contest that threatens financial ruin for himself and his family.

Book Description Cornerstone. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The Accusers: (Falco 15), Lindsey Davis, 'Luckily the judge was eager to adjourn for lunch.' Having returned from his trip to Londinium, Falco takes up employment with two lawyers at the top of their trade. For the trial of a senator, they need Falco to make an affidavit confirming repayment of a loan. Having been out of the country and starved of Forum gossip for some time, Falco has little interest in this trial, so he makes his deposition and then leaves. The prosecution are successful and a large financial judgement is made, but one month later the senator is dead, apparently by suicide. The heirs are now in a situation of not having to pay up, and the prosecutor suddenly decides to seek out Falco. With a little coercion, Falco joins the prosecution in seeking to persuade a magistrate to instigate a new trial. Blinded by the vision of rich pickings to be gained by the prosecution, Falco temporarily forgets that, if they fail, the financial penalties levelled against the informers who brought the case are potentially enormous.
