No caveats for readers of Davis's second playful, well-plotted mystery featuring imperial agent Marcus Didius Falco and based in first century, C.E., Rome. Nero's successor Vespasian has squelched an early treasonous plot and assigned Falco to take care of loose ends, which include the body of the uncle of the high-born young widow Helena Justina, whom Falco met and courted stormily in Silver Pigs. Disguised as an idle vacationer in the company of his comrade and captain of the Aventine Watch, Petronius Longus and family, Falco travels south to Neapolis, Capreae and Pompeii (eight years before its destruction) where he uncovers and must thwart a new conspiracy involving the shipment of Egyptian grain to Rome and an unwitting Helena. Like a toga-clad McGee or Spenser, Falco has a modern sensibility that wears its ancient trappings comfortably, whether he's sneaking down a narrow Roman street or feasting sumptuously at a sunlit coastal villa

From the director of Broadchurch and the producers of Line of Duty comes "an interesting insight into one of the most important scientific breakthroughs in recent history" (The Independent, UK).

Together they attempt what has never been done before-to solve a crime through DNA profiling. Facing public opposition and lack of funding, Baker and Jeffreys conduct the world's first "DNA manhunt" to find the girls' murderer and stop a serial killer in his tracks.
