The Accusers is one of the more recent titles in Lindsey Davis’s long-running series about Marcus Didius Falco, an informer (private detective) in ancient Rome. Davis’s prose is slyly witty with an occasional leavening of snark.

Falco and Associates look into the death of a senator who committed suicide after being convicted of corruption. Was it really suicide? A com­pli­cat­ed courtroom drama ensues.

On a par with other books in the series. En­ter­tain­ing, amusing, and plenty of plot twists.
