Two for the Lions

Two for the Lions

Join Falco in the fight for truth in North Africa . . .

Lumbered with working alongside reptilian Chief Spy Anacrites, Marcus Didius Falco has the perfect plan to make money – he will assist Vespasian in the Emperor’s ‘Great Census’ of AD73. His potential fee could finally allow him to join the middle ranks and be worthy of long-suffering Helena Justina.

Unexpectedly confronted with the murder of a man-eating lion, Falco is distracted from his original task, uncovering a bitter rivalry between the gladiators’ trainers. With one star gladiator dead, Falco is forced to investigate and the trail leads from Rome to the blood-soaked sand of the arena in North Africa.

‘Davis’s prose is a lively joy . . . sinister and gloriously real’ – The Times on Sunday

‘For fans of crime fiction set in the ancient world, this one is not to be missed’ – Booklist

‘Davis’s books crackle with wit and knowledge . . . She has the happy knack of making the reader feel entirely immersed in Rome’ – The Times
