3 BOOK COMBO OF A WONDERFUL MYSTERY SERIES,
This review is from: Falco on His Metal : Venus in Copper, The Iron Hand of Mars and Poseidon's Gold (3 title omnibus) (Paperback)
If you love historical mysteries, then you will love Lindsey Davis' Falco series. They are set in ancient Rome during the time of the Emperor Vespasian. Falco is the detective a scruffy smart-aleck, with a girlfriend who is much too good for him, a large "colorful" family & various helpful friends. The series has wit, style & a close attention to historical detail. But buyer beware! This is not a new book in the series, this is a 3 book combo of the 3rd, 4th & 5th books: Venus in Copper, The Iron Hand of Mars & Posiedon's Gold. The first two books (& yes you REALLY do need to read them in order) are Silver Pigs & Shadows in Bronze. There are 11 books in the series so far & I recommend them all very highly!
