Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Marcus Didius Falco was Lindsey Davis’ bestselling Roman detective, who across twenty novels solved crimes and helped us explore Davis’ unique and brilliant take on Ancient Rome. Now a new era has begun as Falco’s daughter Flavia Albia takes on the family business and shows us a side of Rome rarely explored. A young married couple have been murdered, their silver stolen and their slaves fled to sanctuary and Albia must get to the bottom of the mystery. Well plotted, hugely entertaining and as full of fascinating detail as you’d expect from one of our greatest Ancient Rome novelists.

If you like Lindsey Davis you might also like to read books by Steven Saylor, Rosemary Rowe and David Wishart.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Those who regretted Davis retiring the much-loved Falco need not have worried; her series featuring Falco’s daughter Flavia is just as diverting. We first encountered Flavia in the splendid The Ides of April, and this time a mysterious death at a local villa seems to point to the household slaves – but Flavia is not convinced. As ever, the historical detail in Enemies at Home is impeccable (that’s an absolute given in any Lindsey Davis novel), but it’s the wonderfully inventive plotting – always completely airtight – that keeps the reader’s attention nailed to the page.

Synopsis

Enemies at Home Falco: The New Generation by Lindsey Davis

From renowned author Lindsey Davis, creator of the much-loved character, Marcus Didius Falco and his friends and family, comes the second novel in her all-new series set in Ancient Rome. We first met Flavia Albia, Falco's feisty adopted daughter, in The Ides of April. Albia is a remarkable woman in what is very much a man's world: young, widowed and fiercely independent, she lives alone on the Aventine Hill in Rome and makes a good living as a hired investigator. An outsider in more ways than one, Albia has unique insight into life in ancient Rome, and she puts it to good use going places no man could go, and asking questions no man could ask. Even as the dust settles from her last case, Albia finds herself once again drawn into a web of lies and intrigue. Two mysterious deaths at a local villa may be murder and, as the household slaves are implicated, Albia is once again forced to involve herself. Her fight is not just for truth and justice, however; this time, she's also battling for the very lives of people who can't fight for themselves. Enemies at Home presents Ancient Rome as only Lindsey Davis can, offering wit, intrigue, action and the further adventures of a brilliant new heroine who promises to be as celebrated as Marcus Didius Falco and Helena Justina, her fictional predecessors.
