characters Saturnalia Summary Saturnalia 108 Endously murdered and she escapes from house arrestMarcus Didius Falco is pitted against his old rival the chief spy Anacrites in a race to find the fugitive before her presence angers the public and makes the government look stupid Falco has other priorities for Helena's br. Falco is back and this time facing the madness of Saturnalia As those who know him might guess he s not a fan of the upside down world of the festival His family and household are mad enough as it is so the gods alone know what might happenEvents are further complicated by a reappearance of a figure from the past A general with his eye on personal glory than good sense has captured a German priestess Veleda and brought her to Rome hoping for a Triumph in which she will be the major exhibitHowever a long time ago Falco and Justinus his brother in law found themselves as Veleda s prisoner Justinus spent hours with her and managed to persuade her to free them and Falco has always wondered what happenedThe trouble starts when Justinus goes missing as does Veleda after a severed head is found in the villa where she is being held Falco is called in to sort out the mess before the public find out what has happened and that there is a supposedly bloodthirsty barbarian priestess loose among themFalco is beset by all sorts of family problems and the job itself is also rather too close to home for comfort Along the way he again finds himself going head to head with his old enemy Anacrites the Chief Spy Once again we see Falco having to deal with officials for who everything has to be or at least be seen to be straightforward and black and white Officials who will happily sacrifice him for their own purposesA significant part of the book deals with the medical professions available to Roman citizens for a price and their discussions and arguments are mostly entertaining and crucial to the plot I did feel that at one or two points the author overdid these to show all her researchThe story is tightly plotted with lots of twists and several red herrings and dead ends The last couple of episodes in this series I found a little ordinary but this volume is a real return to form A lot going on plenty of reflection conflicts of conscience and all the madness of Saturnalia A typical slice of life for Falco

characters Saturnalia Summary Saturnalia 108 Other Justinus has also vanished perhaps fatefully involved once with the great lost love of his youthAgainst the riotous backdrop of the season of misrule the search seems impossible and only Falco appears to notice that some dark agency is bringing death to the city street. I remembered the newer Falco novels as being rather disappointing and wasn t hoping for great things I thought I hadn t read this one before but it turns out I hadFrom personal prejudice I don t like the way the author has chosen to break up first Petronius s marriage then Justinus s and what she does to Veleda seems a bit harsh if realistic in terms of barbarians in Rome as well That said i wasn t as disappointed by the book as from memory I had half expected to be there s faint praise for youThe Falco books tend to have a gimmick of the week featuring some new aspect of the Roman world and here it s a the titular festival which sounds very much like the mediaeval Feast of Misrule and b the different schools of medicine uite a few operations take place or are mentioned in this novel some surprising I didn t know the Romans could remove cataracts presumably going in via the pupil of the eye itselfThere is a neat solution to the opening crime although that was one part of the book I didn t remember at all it obviously didn t make as much impression on me as the temple at Nemi There is a rather odd unexplained and rushed scene at the end The Saturnalia stuff is entertaining though I feel it would have been a better book without Anacrites in it at all or at least with less of him in it The author seems attached to him as a character than Falco is who can t stand him or this reader is at least
