Publisher's Summary

In the high summer of 77 AD, Roman informer Marcus Didius Falco is beset by personal problems. A middle-aged couple who supplied statues to his father have disappeared. They had an old feud with a bunch of notorious freedmen, the Claudii, who terrorize the neighborhood. When a mutilated corpse turns up, Falco and his friend Petronius investigate. But just as they are making progress, the Chief Spy, Anacrites, snatches the case away. He makes false overtures of friendship, but fails to cover up the fact that the Claudii have acquired corrupt protection at the highest level. Falco and Petronius dig deeper while the shocking truth creeps closer and closer to home.

Everyman's Rome

I love Falco. Such a wisecracking everyman in a Roman Tunic. I am fascinated by the life of Rome woven through the books without hitting you over the head with the research. The plots are interesting, the writing is wonderful, and Christian Rodska is the perfect Falco. This was the first I bought and I am completely hooked.

The Best Falco Yet

After having read all the Falco novels, I must say that Nemesis is the best yet. It takes a slightly darker turn, and although sated, wanting more. Loose ends are tied, and one in particular. This pleased me enormously.
As to the narration -- just as Simon Vance IS Ruso in Ruth Downie's novels, Christian Rodska IS Falco to me. I enjoyed the radio plays led by Andrew Lesser, but the single voice unabridged books read by Mr. Rodska are much more fulfilling!
