Who is responsible? Desperate Undertaking

A Flavia Albia Novel

by Lindsey Davis

Years ago, a friend of mine introduced me to Lindsey Davis and her Marcus Didius Falco books. I went on to enjoy twenty excellent reads, starting with The Silver Pigs, which was published in 1989. What Ms. Davis did well then and continues to do well now, is create the world of ancient Rome and then people it with characters with whom readers will want to spend time.

Desperate Undertakings is the tenth novel in the Flavia Alba series. Fans of Didius Falco and his spouse already know that Flavia is their daughter. She has many of her parents’ qualities and these help her in figuring out the situations in which she becomes embroiled. Who is killing the Romans? What is the meaning of their dying words? Find out with Flavia. You’ll be glad that you did.

If it turns out the Lindsey Davis is an author for you and this is your first book by her, you have some fantastic reads ahead. Lucky you.

Many thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press-Minotaur for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
