They say that Rome wasn’t built in a day and it certainly took me many days to record the nine Falco novels of Lindsay Davis that are set in Ancient Rome. On Friday 13th of February I completed the series. The novels have a ‘who-dun-it’ element and some are pretty gory and graphic but the main element that runs through the books is Davis’ wry humor. Falco (spy to Emperor Vespasian) is wonderfully entertaining company (he’s the ‘narrator’) and the supporting cast is made up for some delightful characters like Helena, Falco’s intelligent and beautiful girlfriend/wife and Falco’s
batty, dysfunctional family. A funny thing happened on the way to the Forum? You bet!
