Publisher's Summary

Balbinus Pius, the most notorious gangster in Emperor Vespasian's Rome, has been convicted of a capital crime at last. A quirk of Roman law, however, allows citizens condemned to death "time to depart" and find exile outside the empire. Now, as every hoodlum in Rome scrambles to take over Balbinus' operations, private eye Marcus Didius Falco has to deal with an unprecedented wave of crime - and the sneaking suspicion that Balbinus' exile may not really be so permanent after all.

Time to Depart

Another great romp through ancient Rome with some very fine characters leading our way. We laugh and worry after what have become good friends as they face they live their lives, face their futures and of course work their way through the enemies and mysteries they now face. One of Lindsey Davis best Falco stories and the reason we, the faithful readers and now audio listeners keep coming back for more.
