SYNOPSIS
Back in Rome after a dangerous mission to the Roman province of Baetica, 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. Irresistibly drawn to a problem nobody else wants to know about, the two friends learn that body parts have been turning up for years in the water systems of Rome - the aqueducts, the sewers and even the River Tiber itself. The killer strikes during public festivals, and the Roman Games are imminent: they will take place in the sweltering summer heat when the whole city fills up with sightseers and there is a dangerous air of disorder.
