A Body in the Bathhouse

Lindsey Davis: A Body in the Bathhouse (USA 2002)

From the Publisher:
By Hades, there's nothing more timeless than the headaches of home remodeling. Roman private eye Marcus Didius Falco, who faces cutthroats with aplomb, gladly leaves dealing with building contractors to his wife, Helena. Unfortunately, the horrid evidence emanating from a new bathhouse falls into Falco's area of expertise. Dead men tell no tales, but they do have a distinctive odor...

Removing the mosaic floor leaves Falco with a corpse on his hands and a good notion who is responsible--Gloccus and Cotta, a pair of mean characters and bad plasterers. But is he willing to chase them all the way to Britannia where they are purported to be working on a Roman public works project? Despite the British weather (damp), the inhabitants (barbarians), and the wine (second rate), Falco promises the Emperor he will investigate the murder, and sets sail.

In veritas, Falco's real reason for leaving Rome, and taking his family and dog with him, is a desperate one. His sister Maia has rejected the affection of one of Rome's most powerful officials, and the spurned suitor's plans for revenge are nasty, brutal, and utterly chilling. Falco can only hope that the far reaches of the Empire hold safety for those he loves--but hope is a pale protector, and danger may be just a ship behind...

A Body in the Bath House

Lindsey Davis: A Body in the Bath House (UK 2002)

From the Publisher:
AD 75. As a passion for home improvement sweeps through the Roman Empire, Marcus Didius Falco struggles to deal with Gloccus and Cotta, a pair of terrible bath house contractors whose slow progress and bad workmanship have been causing him misery for months. They finally finish their contract, but leave Falco and his father with a ghastly smell from a hypocaust and some gruesome site debris...

Far away in Britain, King Togidubnus of the Atrebates tribe is planning his own makeover. His huge new residence (known to us as Fishbourne Palace) will be spectacular - but the sensational refurbishment is behind time and over budget, its labour force is beset by 'accidents', corrupt practices are rife, and everyone loathes the project manager. The frugal Emperor Vespasian is paying for all this; he wants someone to investigate. Falco has a new baby, an new house, and he hates Britain. But his feud with Anacrites the Chief Spy has now reached a dangerous level, so with his own pressing reasons to leave Rome in a hurry, he accepts the task.

A thousand miles from home, with only his family to support him, he starts restoring order to the chaotic building site. Then, while he searches the feuding workforce for Gloccus and Cotta, he realises that someone with murderous intentions is now after him...

A Body in the Bath House

Lindsey Davis: A Body in the Bath House (UK 2001)

From the Publisher:
The thirteenth whodunnit featuring Marcus Didius Falco - ancient Rome's Philip Marlowe - set against the very real backdrop of the Roman Palace at Fishbourne in Britain. Falco and Helena have escaped Helena's expensive mistake on the Janiculan Hill and house-swapped with Falco's father. But they've left behind a nasty surprise. There's a corpse in the newly completed bathhouse and the contractors, Gloccus and Cotta, have fled to Britain. As it happens, Britain is currently Falco's best employment opportunity. Frontinus, Governor of the Isle, wants Falco to sort out some problems he has with a huge Imperial building project on the south coast. Is it there that Gloccus and Cotta have fled? With his burgeoning family in tow, Falco sets out to the land he swore he would never visit again, not knowing that a string of murders and building site politics await him.

Lindsey Davis: A Body in the Bath House. Century; ISBN: 071268039X (August, 2001); 304 p., £15.99.
