A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Winner of the Best First Novel award from the Authors' Club, and debut of the Didius Falco mystery series.
It is A.D. 70, when Roman P.I. Marcus Didius Falco runs into comely Sosia Camillina on the steps of the Forum. It seems she's being chased by a few unsavories for a stockpile of silver pigs--silver ingots--but Falco wants more information. What he gets is a whiff of treason and a one-way ticket to his own funeral pyre....
"It has everything: mystery, pace, wit, fascinating scholarship, and above all, two protagonists for whom, by the end, I feel genuine affection, and want to meet again."
Ellis Peters

From the Publisher:

Lindsey Davis' books manage to invoke a film noir atmosphere in Ancient Rome, which if you think about it is not so far from 1930s California -- a lot of sunshine on the surface with something much darker underneath. Her hero (and I use the term lightly) is Marcus Didius Falco, who becomes a private eye for the Emperor. In SILVER PIGS, the first book in the series, we are introduced to Falco's mother and the rest of his family -- along with a group of high-born Romans. Davis never loses the sense that we are in a very different time and place, but the personal relationships and situations that Falco gets himself into are timeless.
