A new series from Lyndsey Davis, first published in 2013.
The heroine is Falco’s adopted daughter, Flavia Albia, who has grown from a troubled teenager to a feisty widow and who is an investigator in her own right. The series begins in 89 CE, shifting the background from the reign of jovial Vespasian to the darker time of his paranoid son Domitian.
Like the Falco novels, these stories are told in the first person, with the often caustic Albia giving us her refreshing new perspective on the traditional Roman world from the viewpoint of a woman and an outsider.
Although we see familiar people and places, Albia has her own circle of acquaintances, bugbears and lovers; she has her own past – and her own future.
