This sequel to The Silver Pigs picks up only days after the first ended; I like the continuity, though I think if you go a long time between reading them, it might be harder to pick up the thread of the story. You can look at this volume as sort of wrapping up the first, as the conspirators who were exiled start getting bumped off by a mysterious man who's always a couple of steps ahead of Falco. His task (a thankless one, so of course Vespasian picked him for the job) to find and warn the remaining conspirators gets tangled up in his relationship with senator's daughter Helena Justina; she's socially off-limits, but both of them have trouble remembering that. There's some retconning of events in the first book, but Davis justifies her revised plot well enough that I didn't mind. Again, I like Davis's descriptions of ancient Rome, and while this book is no substitute for actual history, it helps put historical events into perspective.
