Lindsey Davies has created a new series for the adoptive daughter of her wisecracking Roman investigator Falco. Flavia Alba is a widow in her late 20s, loves her family but doesn't want to live with them and has learnt her trade as an informer off her adoptive father.

The characters are amusing, particularly Falco himself and the plot marches along as quickly as a Roman legion. I have the next one on my TBR, anyone else read any?
