Summary
"First-century Rome is not the quiet, orderly city that it pretends to be, and in this environment a very clever private informer can thrive. Flavia Albia, daughter of Marcus Didius Falco, is a chip off the old block. She's taken over her father's old profession, and, like him, she occasionally lets her love of a good puzzle get in the way of her better judgment. Such is the situation when a case is brought to her by the very hostile ex-wife of Albia's new husband. It seems that over on the Quirinal Hill, a naive young girl, one Clodia Volumnia, has died, and there's a suggestion that she was poisoned by a love potion. The local witch, Pandora, would have been the one to supply such a potion. Looking into the matter, Albia soon learns that Pandora carries on a public trade in herbal beauty products while keeping hidden her much more dangerous connections. The young girl herself was a handful and her so-called friends not as friendly as they pretend. The supposedly sweet air of the Quirinal hides the smells of loose morality, casual betrayal, and even gangland conflict. And that's just the beginning. When one of her own friends is murdered, Albia becomes even more determined to expose as much of this local corruption and crime as she can--beginning with the truth about the death of young Clodia." --
