The Marcus Didius Falco Mystery Series

Venus in Copper

Severina Zotica, a savvy, flame-haired temptress, has had the misfortune of marrying men who died rather quickly and under mysterious circumstances. She has met her match in Falco. He can’t be seduced, lied to, or bribed off a case as interesting as this one. but when two people are violently killed under his watch, Falco gets hot under the toga. And just when it looks as if a serious pummeling by trained killers will send him home for good, Falco, the noblest of Romans, has another go at the Gordian knot that will take all his skill to untangle...
