See Delphi and Die
It�s A.D. 76 during the reign of Vespasian, and Marcus Didius Falco, a Roman �informer,� has achieved much in his life. He�s joined the equestrian rank, allowing him to marry Helena Justina, the Senator�s beloved daughter. But now he�s just been hired to undergo a dangerous mission: to pry his brother-in-law Aulus, a scholar on the way to study in Athens, away from a murder investigation involving two dead women at the ancient site of the Olympic Games. Traveling to Greece under the guise of being tourists, Falco and Helena visit the country�s classic sites in order to investigate the suspicious goings-on and shady dealings of Seven Sights, a fly-by-night travel agency. What begins as a risky expedition becomes sinister when Aulus, too, goes missing in what becomes Falco�s most complex and high-stakes case yet.
