Poseidon's Gold by Lindsey Davis

Poseidon's Gold - Lindsey Davis

Series: Marcus Didius Falco #5


Falco returns to Rome, gets mired in some old scheme of his dead brother’s, and is accused of a centurion’s murder. Shenanigans ensue.


Overall this was a fun read, although what happens with the Poseidon statue is a bit of a disappointment. I can’t say I approve of Falco’s rough interrogation techniques, however. Dealing with Falco’s extended family was amusing.
