Lindsey Davis was born in Birmingham, England, in 1949
and studied at Oxford before joining the civil service. Her crime
fiction work is set in ancient Rome, the main series character being
Falco. Davis is still a leading light in the, ever burgeoning, field of
historical mysteries and her work is highly recommended. All UK editions
precede their US counterparts, the are no alternative titles and the
first three books are the rarest. Hyperlinked titles in the bibliography
go to pictures and synopsis.
