Inimitable sleuth Falco is back with a vengeance. One night, a man is killed and Rome's Chief Spy left for dead. This leaves no one except Falco to conduct the investigation. Soon he is plunged into the fiercely competitive world of olive oil production. Political intrigue, an exotic Spanish dancer, and impending fatherhood all add to Falco's troubles.

Praise for A Dying Light in Corduba

“Especially captivating...memorable.” —The Wall Street Journal on Alexandria

“Wisecracking in ancient idiom, Falco seems, nevertheless, a recognizably up-to-date young man, one whose honor, humor and humanity work him quickly into reader's affection. Davis's story rewards as much for deft handling of plot and depth of characterization as for its historicity.” —Publishers Weekly on The Silver Pigs

“Woven into Falco's adventures are humor, romance, suspense, and clues for the discerning reader. Highly recommended for mystery or historical fiction collections.” —Library Journal on The Silver Pigs
