Product description


Remarkably fresh... Author Lindsey Davis (Pandora's Boy) balances grit and frivolity with ease. Flavia feels like the love child of Philip Marlowe and Carrie Bradshaw--she's on the case, observing and reporting with care, but keeps a running line of saucy commentary on everyone throughout. --Bookpage

Davis does her usual brilliant job of integrating the history of the period, warts and all... a fast-paced and fair whodunit. This entry reinforces her place at the top of the historical mystery pack. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Delicious...Vivat Flavia! --Booklist (starred review)

The abundant charm of the heroine and the heavily detailed historical background will hook readers and keep them hooked. --Kirkus Reviews

Lindsey Davis was born and raised in Birmingham, England. After taking an English degree at Oxford and working for the civil service for thirteen years, she "ran away to be a writer." Her internationally bestselling novels featuring ancient Roman detective Marcus Didius Falco include Venus in Copper, The Iron Hand of Mars, Nemesis and Alexandria. She is also the author of Rebels and Traitors, set during the English Civil War. Davis is the recipient of the Crime Writers' Association Cartier Diamond Dagger Award, the highest accolade for crime writers, as well as the Ellis Peters Historical Dagger Award and the Authors' Club Best First Novel award.
