about

The Silver Pigs is the first book in Lindsey Davis' bestselling Falco series.
 
Rome. AD 70. Private eye Marcus Didius Falco knows his way around the eternal city. He can handle the muggers, the police and most of the girls. But one fresh sixteen-year-old, Sosia Camillina, finds him a case no Roman should be getting his nose into. Some friends, Romans and countrymen are doing a highly profitable, if highly illegal, trade in silver ingots or pigs. For Falco it's the start of a murderous trail that leads far beyond the seven hills — to a godforsaken land called Britain, to Emperor Vespasian himself, and to Helena Justina – a lady leagues out of Falco’s class.
Lindsey Davis now writes full time. She is the author of eleven Falco novels and one historical love story, A Course of Honour. Two For the Lions won the first CWA Ellis Peters Historical Dagger.From the Hardcover edition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting Nice reading, humorous, seems rather accurate historically. I also learned some new things about Rome.
