'I came fully equipped with the old prejudice that anything to do with Egypt involved corruption and deceit.'
AD 77. Egypt was the destination of choice for Roman tourists, being home to not one but two Wonders of the Ancient World, a Centre of Culture, and people with exotic habits.
Unfortunately, when Marcus Didius Falco pays a visit he discovers it's also a hotbed of schemers and murderers. When the Head Librarian dies in suspicious circumstances, the Roman authorities are only too happy to dump the case on one of the Empire's most celebrated investigators - all adding up to a typical Falco family vacation.

5 Star Series
It befuddles me that there are not enough reviews to show an average rating for Lindsey Davis' Marcus Didius books. They do not need 'enough' reviews.
In my opinion they should all show a 5 star rating. Lindsey, like Fusculus, loves words and these books have them all. Marcus Didius is by far my most favourite Informer and will always be. Coupled with his best friend Petronius I am sure they would 'out sleuth' any other detective everyday of the week.
Thank you Lindsey Davis!
