Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Lumbered with working alongside reptilian Chief Spy Anacrites, Falco has hit upon the perfect plan - offering his services as a tax collector with draconian powers to Vespasian and Titus in conducting the 'great Census' of AD73. If he does well, his fee will finally allow him to join the middle ranks and wed long-suffering companion Helena Justina. Meanwhile, smoothie landlord Smaractus is suspiciously trying to impress him and, on the domestic front, Falco is needed to trace a relative who has eloped and has a crazy plan for finding an extinct herb. Distracted by the apparent murder of a star man-eating lion, Falco uncovers a bitter rivalry between the gladiators' trainers. When one also ends up dead Falco is forced to investigate. The trail leads to Africa, with Helena Justina and little Julia in tow. . .
