The Graveyard of the Hesperides

Historischer Krimi von Lindsey Davis

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.

Band 4 der Serie “This excellent Roman mystery, enriched by Davis’s characteristic wit and thorough understanding of the period, takes a darker turn as Flavia delves into Rome’s poorest streets, rife with prostitution, exploitation, thuggery and murder.” (Sunday Express) (101 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 336 Seiten noch günstig?

The Ides of April

Historischer Krimi von Lindsey Davis

Flavia Albia is the adopted daughter of a famous investigating family. In defiance of tradition, she lives alone on the colourful Aventine Hill, and battles out a solo career in a male-dominated world. As a woman and an outsider, Albia has special insight into the best, and worst, of life in ancient Rome. A female client dies in mysterious circumstances. Albia investigates and discovers there have been many other strange deaths all over the city, yet she is warned off by the authorities. The vigils are incompetent. The local magistrate is otherwise engaged, organising the Games of Ceres, notorious for its ancient fox-burning ritual.
