I loved a Dying Light in Corduba. Another entertaining book in Lindsey Davis's charming series about Marcus Didius Falco, a detective in Ancient Rome. This one brings him and his pregnant patrician girlfriend to Spain investigating a murder and suspected cartel.

This one lost her mystery when she bumped into me.

The first book I have read from this, seemingly, very popular series. Because I was in Andalucia at the time I thought that it would be interesting to gather insight into the region during the Roman period, and, at the same time I expected to enjoy a light, but well-fashioned detective mystery, as comments on the series have suggested. I was disappointed on all counts. I never felt that the specific atmosphere of the ancient world was particularly well captured, whether in Rome, or in the Spanish provinces. Everything was hot and dusty and could have been anywhere at any time.The plot,about the dangers of an olive oil cartel, never managed to transmit any sense of urgency, one way or the other, and I found myself caring very little whether the protagonists succeeded in their scheming or not. The final denouement I thought particularly lame, and the central character, who I suppose gains his popularity with readers through his world-weary modern cynical slant on all human interaction, drifts towards the final pages without really seeming to have solved anything. I don't think that I will be buying any of the others.

Once again Falco takes us to a new part of the Roman Empire this time Spain. While I enjoy the forays into new areas it does make me miss all the family fun left behind. There is still plenty of Helena and Falco to hold us over but it is not the same as the ones set in Rome.

The mystery itself was solved a bit tidily but it does fit with the facts as we know them.

I loved a Dying Light in Corduba. What I don't like is that Amazon advertises the audiobook as "Audiobook CD" and when I receive it, it has been changed to an MP3 CD. The audiobook description should include the number of CDs so that I don't have to keep returning the MP3s.
As for a Dying Light in Corduba, we have a very pregnant Helena joining Marcus on his travels for the emperor. Great adventure, we learn how distance was tracked by ancient vehicle renters, and we are left with a cliff hanger.... is the baby a boy or a girl? The next novel in the series will tell us!

Another entertaining book in Lindsey Davis's charming series about Marcus Didius Falco, a detective in Ancient Rome. This one brings him and his pregnant patrician girlfriend to Spain investigating a murder and suspected cartel.

Falco's number eight takes him to what's now southern Spain, trying to find out who tried to kill his old enemy, the chief spy. Meanwhile, back in Rome, Helena is about to give birth. Less compelling than some of the other novels, though the Spanish sidetrip is interesting, and one still cares about Falco and Helena.

Love all her books, can't stop reading them.

I found this an important link in the story of Falco and Helena, but not a favourite. There is a great deal of travelling - not unusal for the time, and I feel the story lacks pace. The elements of the story have a great deal of drama but the flow is too gentle. This probably reflects Falco's need to protect Helena, but I feel she should be a bit more feisty.
Marcus DIdius at his best. Goes to Corduba to track down an oil (olive) cartel with the very pregnant Helena and hijinks ensue. If you,re a Falco fan don't give this one a miss. You may have trouble finding a copy I had to buy mine used but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
