Description

"There are rules for private informers accepting a new case. Never take on clients who cannot pay you. Never do favors for friends. Don't work with relatives. If, like me, you are a woman, keep clear of men you find attractive."

"Will I never learn?"

In ancient Rome, the number of slaves was far greater than that of free citizens. As a result, often the people Romans feared most were the "enemies at home," the slaves under their own roofs. Because of this, Roman law decreed that if the head of a household was murdered at home, and the culprit wasn't quickly discovered, his slaves—all of them, guilty or not—were presumed responsible and were put to death ... without exception.

When a couple is found dead in their own bedroom and their house burglarized, some of their household slaves know what is about to happen to them. They flee to the Temple of Ceres, which by tradition is respected as a haven for refugees. This is where Flavia Albia comes in. The authorities, under pressure from all sides, need a solution. Albia, a private informer like her father, Marcus Didius Falco, is asked to solve the murders.

      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Flavia Alba, wonderfully performed by Lucy Brown, is a freelance investigator in classical Rome. She accepts an assignment from an official named Manilius Faustus in spite of her rule against working with men she finds attractive. The crime, a triple murder, is ingeniously plotted, and the setting is completely fascinating--like an episode of "The Wire" set in ancient times. You find out all kinds of things about domestic life, politics, slavery, crime and punishment, and the workings of the city from top to bottom. Lucy Brown's voice is lovely, and she has a wonderful way with the tongue in cheek, which suits Davis's style perfectly. Brown's Flavia is likable and pragmatic but not hard, and she delineates a diverse cast with ease. Delightful. B.G. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine
