READ ´ The AccusersMarcus Didius Falco #15 Ding out something he does not know about how things work; this is a good detective story partly because of the exposition of the Roman legal system and not in spite of it It also helps that it is one of the Davis novels in which Falco over reaches and finds himself distinctly out of his depth; he is one of the most attractive of historical detectives because he is not infallible Roz Kaven. Translated bySusanne AeckerleBack in Rome Falco and Partners is now engaged to investigate an alleged senatorial suicide so they are drawn into corruption blackmail murder and other malfeasanceThe 15th story of informer Falco had everything I expected and love in this series a lot cynicism and witty dialogues character development and glimpses into what feels like everyday antic roman life The Courtroom drama in this one which was a bit different than the usual plots was something I particularly enjoyed The Boyfriend Next Door finds himself distinctly out of his depth; he is one of the most attractive of historical detectives because he is not infallible Roz Kaven.
