Publisher's Summary

In the first century AD, during Domitian's reign, Flavia Albia is ready for a short break from her family. So in July she returns to Rome, leaving them at their place on the coast. Albia, daughter of Marcus Didius Falco, who is now retired as private informer, has taken up her father's former profession, and it's time to get back to work. The first order of business, however, is the corpse found in a chest sent as part of a large lot to be sold by the Falco family auction house. As the senior family representative in Rome, it falls upon Albia to find out who, why, and by whom.
At the same time, her potential suitor, Faustus, comes looking for help with his friend Sextus' political campaign. Between the auction business and Roman politics, it's not quite clear which is more underhanded. Both, however, are tied together by the mysterious body in the chest, and if Albia isn't able to solve that mystery, it won't be the only body to drop.

best of the the series so far!

definitely preferred this narrator to the previous. this narrator made Flavia Alba sound more like a 30 yr old woman and investigator rather than petulant and cynical as I felt the last two books sounded. It was a great mystery, with lots of twists in it!

Albia Flavia competes with didius falco

I really enjoyed the Didius Falco series. This is the best book in the new series about his adopted daughter from Britannia. Some good background about elections during the Roman Empire
