Fresh from his trip to Britain, Falco needs to re-establish his presence in Rome
A minor role in the trial of a senator entangles him in the machinations of Silius Italicus and Paccius Africanus, two real-life lawyers at the top of their trade. These notorious ex-consuls play a dangerous game, where success brings rich pickings but a mistrial or a wrong verdict entails huge financial penalties.
The senator is convicted but then dies, apparently by suicide. However, Silius hires Falco and his young associates to prove it was murder.
