Petronius Longus, captain of the Aventine watch and Falco's oldest friend, has finally nailed one of Rome's top criminals. Under Roman law, citizens are not imprisoned but are allowed "time to depart" into exile outside the Empire. One dark and gloomy dawn, Petro and Falco put the evil Balbinus aboard a ship.

But soon after, an outbreak of robbery and murder suggests a new criminal ring has moved into Balbinus's territory. Petro and Falco must descend into the underworld of Vespasian's Rome to investigate.

Praise for Time to Depart

“Alexandria is intricately plotted, the characters are well drawn, and Falco is as engaging a protagonist as ever, still tough but wiser and more reflective. Another winner!” —Library Journal

“Lindsey Davis doesn't just bring Rome to life--she brings Rome to life better than anyone else ever has.” —Detroit Free Press on The Silver Pigs

“An irresistible package of history, mystery, and fast-moving action, all punctuated by a sense of humor that few writers can match.” —The Cleveland Plain Dealer on Venus in Copper
