What a wonderful author! Lindsey Davis brings ancient Rome to life, set in the time of the Emperor Vespasian's rule, in the person of Marcus Didius Falco, 'delator' or private investigator in modern parlance. The Silver Pigs is a crime mystery novel, the characters are skillfully developed and three-dimensional, and the setting in this work, ranging from Britain to Rome, is masterfully drawn. Who knew urine was used in Roman laundries to return togas to sparkling whiteness?! I am fascinated by customs and practices of the past and particularly drawn to novels set in ancient Rome. The 'Masters of Rome' series by Colleen McCullough and Ian Ross' 'Twilight of Empire' series have been avidly devoured too! Now I have discovered Lindsey Davis, I am absolutely delighted that there are another 19 books to read in the Falco series. Plus 4 books to read with Favia Albia at the centre.
