Description

Lindsey Davis has seen off all her competitors to become the unassailable market leader in the crime in Ancient Rome genre . . . Daviss squalid, vibrant Rome is as pleasurable as ever – Guardian For fans of crime fiction set in the ancient world, this one is not to be missed – Booklist Private investigator Flavia Albia is always drawn to an intriguing puzzle – even if it is put to her by her new husbands hostile ex-wife. On the Quirinal Hill, a young girl named Clodia has died, apparently poisoned with a love potion. Only one person could have supplied such a thing: a local witch who goes by the name of Pandora, whose trade in herbal beauty products is hiding something far more sinister. The supposedly sweet air of the Quirinal is masking the stench of loose morality, casual betrayal and even gangland conflict and, when a friend of her own is murdered, Albia determines to expose as much of this local sickness as she can – beginning with the truth about Clodias death. **************** Praise for Lindsey Davis and the Flavia Albia series Daviss prose is a lively joy, and Flavias Rome is sinister and gloriously real The Times on Sunday Daviss books crackle with wit and knowledge . . . She has the happy knack of making the reader feel entirely immersed in Rome
