    The Silver Pigs Epub õ The Silver MOBI :´ silver epub, pigs download, The Silver download, The Silver Pigs PDFWay back in early 2015 I read Lindsey Davis' The Ides of April I liked it and since it featured the daughter of Marcus Didius Falco I thought I would eventually get around to the original character The Silver Pigs is the first of many Falco novels that Davis wrote over a period of than 20 years I rarely think that an entertaining mystery merits five stars but this one does For many of us who would rather read historical mysteries than current true crime the attraction is what an author can do to transport us to a different time and place and to make us understand andor feel what it was like to breath and walk around in that remote land Davis is a master at doing so with Imperial RomeWe climbed up then strolled side by side In early April just before dinner we were virtually alone It was all there Nothing like it in the world

    The Silver Pigs Epub õ The Silver MOBI :´ silver epub, pigs download, The Silver download, The Silver Pigs PDF The Silver Pigs is fun to read And if you're looking to read to relax there's no better praiseAs I mentioned in my comment the voice and tone reminded me of Glen Cook's Garrett PI series sans the fantasy element Even strongly I'm reminded of a Roman Rockford Files which may be brilliantly illuminative to those of a certain age or who have a taste for '70s detective shows For the rest you can wiki it and then hunt down copies of the episodes which stream on NetflixBut I'm digressingMarcus Didius Falco is an ex legionary current informer ie private investigator in the Rome of Vespasian AD 69 79 If you're looking for fast paced engaging and smartly written bedsideairplane reading then I can

    The Silver Pigs Epub õ The Silver MOBI :´ silver epub, pigs download, The Silver download, The Silver Pigs PDFThis is the highly entertaining and enjoyable first novel in the series Marcus Didius Falco is a first century detective in Rome or as they are known there and then an informer This story starts in a hot day at the Rome Forum where Falco sights and then takes in hand a fleeing young woman from the senator class Sosia Camillina is sixteen radiantly innocent and someone has tried to kidnap her from the very sanctum of her home Sosia has no idea why and discovering that is the long often obfuscated trail that takes Falco and the reader throughout the beautifully researched and vividly recreated Rome 70 71 AD It takes us traveling across the Roman empire through the provinces of Europe and then to Britain where again meticulous scholarship and interest in the period come through in the exciting tale of Falco

Phillip Marlowe? Mike Hammer? Nope none other than Marcus Didius Falco the private investigator who is the creation of English author Lindsey Davis And “The Silver Pigs” is the first of 20 books she has written about the adventures of Falco set in 70 AD during the the beginning of the reign of Roman Emperor VespacianI always marvel at how well British authors can work with the Roman Empire as a setting as there are quite a few books and series set in Ancient Rome as I am also a huge fan of the Medicus series by Ruth Downie – I admit I have not read the works of Steven Saylor from th

    The Silver Pigs Epub õ The Silver MOBI :´ silver epub, pigs download, The Silver download, The Silver Pigs PDFI like the MC in this series He is like your uncle who lives next door He is normal trying to do the best he canand he can be suckered into things I liked that I got to see detail about him I've read a few of these novels in this series and they all share some commonalities The author writes with a contemporary flaireven though this is Ancient Rome historical fiction That usually isn't something I like but she makes it work in her books I also like the way she constructs her plots The mystery is methodical and it peels away piece by piece So 3 stars

    The Silver Pigs Epub õ The Silver MOBI :´ silver epub, pigs download, The Silver download, The Silver Pigs PDFOh where do I start? A private eye series set in ancient Rome This is the first one I won't add all the books individually there are I think 18 by now but it's set in Rome in 70AD the hero is Marcus Didius Falco a Roman 'informer' and his friends and his over the top family and his lady Helena Justina the senator's daughter way out of his league but that doesn't stop them lol and HER family They are my favourite ancient Roman couple Evah There is adventure all over the Empire treachery theft politics murder even children you name it you'll find it here I love love love this series Probably rates three stars for writing plus an extra for meticulous research inserted so painlessly that you're barely aware of it
