Brief intro: Falco is a Roman informer who has a nose for trouble. In the Forum, where pretty Sosia flees for her life, he rashly decides to save her - and regrets the move. She has stolen Imperial ingots. Senator's daughter Helena Justina is connected to traitors Falco has sworn to expose. The snooping plebe faces a murderous cabal.
Review: Fav book ( and series.) Catching inner voice and entretaining mystery, with good pace and plotting.
The books can be read as standalones, there is always enough information to follow what have been happening with the characters, but I would recommend to read them in order.
