SEE DELPHI AND DIE by Lindsey Davis - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Lindsey Davis.

"It's A.D. 76 during the reign of Vespasian, and Marcus Didius Falco has achieved much in his life. From humble beginnings, he's worked his way up into the equestrian rank, allowing him to marry Helena Justin, the senator's daughter he adores. But life is never quiet for Falco and Helena." "Falco is an informer by trade - his job is to uncover unwelcome truths and deal with sensitive situations, often at the behest of the imperial government. But now he has to deal with a crisis much closer to home - his brother-in-law, Aulus, a scholar on the way to study in Athens, has gotten distracted by an unsolved murder of a girl on a package tour of Greece. First century Rome, with political stability, safe seas, good roads, and provinces rich in antiquities, has become a golden age of tourism. But where there are tourists, there are all manner of unsavory people eager to take advantage." To get Helena's brother, Aulus, safely back on the road to Athens, Falco and Helena must travel to Olympia under the guise of being tourists in order to investigate the shady dealings of Seven Sights, a seedy Roman travel agency. With two women - a young girl and a newlywed woman - having already been murdered, things only get more complex when two more - the bridegroom and Helena's brother - disappear without a trace. A killer is haunting Greece's famous monuments. Now, in a case that is both perplexing and disturbing, Falco must uncover the truth before it is too late.
