I really can't recommend the Falco series enough Lindsey Davis has the wonderful ability to bring the ancient roman world Falco inhabits so vividly to life.
The books make reference to previous events but you can certainly read each one in isolation without the need for prior knowledge.
I highly recommend these books, the author's descriptive powers are wonderful and....apologies for the cliche....but you really feel as if you are there watching events unfurl.
Another excellent Falco book that is difficult to put down. For those who like historical crime fiction, even for those who don't, this is a must.
The book can be enjoyed in isolation,as can all of the books in the Falco series, but I recommned that one read the previous novels first. As with all of Lindsey Davis's novels the plot isn't as important to her as the development of the characters. I think this is what her devotees enjoy. One enjoys learning of Petro's marital problems, that Falco is now a father and that Anacrities is still a pain. The story doesn't end with Falco solving a mystery - it begins with Falco becoming a land owner and the love life's of his brother-in-laws in need of his worldly wise intervention. This is another enjoyable, untaxing read that leaves devotees chomping at the bit for Two for the Lions. Come on bring it out in paperback !
do yourself a favour and buy the series if you haxen't already done so!
