Publisher's summary

This novel in the acclaimed Marcus Didius Falco series finds the first-century detective confronting Roman legal forces that may just destroy him - and his family.

Fresh from a trip to far-flung Londinium in Britain, Falco needs to reestablish his presence in Rome. A minor role in the trial of a senator entangles him in the machinations of two powerful lawyers. The senator is convicted but then dies, apparently by suicide. It may have been a legal move to protect his heirs; Falco is hired to prove it was murder.

As he shows off his talents in the role of advocate, Falco exposes himself to a tangle of upper-class secrets and powerful elements in Rome's legal hierarchy that may have unintended - if not fatal - consequences.

Odd editing

Midway through the book it seemed almost as if there were two different versions of Simon Prebble narrating the book. I don’t think it was the reader’s fault—it sounded like two different readings that had been recorded years apart had been spliced together in a mad rush. Solid Falco story but terrible production value.
