Three Hands In The Fountain

Lindsey Davis: Three Hands In The Fountain (USA 1999)

From the Publisher:
In vino, veritas. But in the water supply of Rome, horroras Marcus Didius Falco is about to find out. Sharing an ewer of Spanish red with his old friend and new partner Petronius Longus, Falco is on the spot when a man cleaning the local fountain makes a gruesome discovery: a human hand. Small and evidently female, the hand suggests its owner met a terrifying fate. Naturally, Falco and Petro, formerly of the Vigiles, want to seize on it as their first big case. The officials of Rome, however, prefer to hush up the incident, since a population that riots at the drop of a toga might run wild if body parts are polluting their drinking water. Soon other delicate, dismembered hands are being found in Rome's two hundred miles of aqueduct. Now aided, inspired, and given critical clues by his wife, Helena, Falco & Partner are ready to buck the status quo and even butt heads with Falco's old boss, Chief Spy Anacrites, to crack the case. But O, Hades! The duo suspects a serial killer is at large, linked topublic festivals, and likely to strike again at the upcoming Roman Games. Even a detective as astute as Falco may not spot a twisted mind in a crowd of 250,000. And if Falco loses this race with time, another pretty victim will make a deadly splash...

Marcus Didius Falco is enjoying a drink of ill-travelled Spanish wine with his old friend Petronius Longus when a man cleaning the local fountain makes a gruesome discovery: a severed human hand. The two friends learn that body parts have been turning up for years in the water systems of Roman - the aqueducts, the sewers and even the River Tiber itself. The killer strikes during public festivals, and the Roman Games are imminent. The city will be full of sightseers: finding the killer among thousands will be next to impossible. Aided and inspired as always by Helena Justina, and struggling to avoid the snakelike Chief Spy Anacrites who wants to beat them to the answer, Falco and Petro acquire an enthusiastic consul as a patron. Together they start searching two hundred miles of aqueducts and the teeming streets around the Circus Maximus, in a desperate race to catch the sadist whose next strike can only be days away...
