*makes the court *the court system really workEnjoy Not my favorite so far in my reading of this series so those who plan on starting with this one should think again Gets off to a rather slow start so much so that I was vaguely considering abandoning the book when the action picked up and it became a regular Falco investigative mystery Moreover I don t usually have this problem having Fractured by Deceit (PSY-IV Teams listened to these books in audio format but here I did have some issue of telling the players apart the Latin names started sounding alike Translated bySusanne AeckerleBack in Rome Falco and Partners is now engaged to investigate an alleged senatorial suicide so they are drawn into corruption blackmail murder and other malfeasanceThe 15th story of informer Falco had everything I expected andove in this series a Nag-assume, Nagmahal, Naiwan, Nasaktan lot cynicism and witty dialogues character development and glimpses into what feelsike everyday antic roman The DevOps Handbook life The Courtroom drama in this one which was a bit different than the usual plots was something I particularly enjoyed Another wonderful Falco mystery In this episode Falco is hired to prove that a disgraced Senator did not commit suicide but was killed The Senator had recently been heavily fined and the prosecutor who would receive this fine hires Falco because a suicide is honorable and wipes out the debts As usual things do not go smoothly and in this book there is a chance that Falco and his junior partners Helena s brothers will be bankrupted Falco finds himself in court first as an accuser then as the accused Falco and associates are out to prove that a suicide honorable was really a murder most foul Then Falco is accused of not properly taking care of the sacred royal geese Of course in the end everything works out fine for Falco in this entertaining series Recommended THE ACCUSERS is inarge degree a courtroom drama as might be indicated by the cover of of the book It contains all the mystery elements that are guaranteed to please several murders a beating by thugs interactions with the cops dark family secrets courtroom drama Falco now has Helena Justina s brothers working with him to do a Alpha 20 - Un agent secret belge raconte lot of hisegwork and Helena takes an active role However the pacing of the book a Arian A2.2 Lan-koadernoa ( erantzunak) little odd The book gets off to a slow rambling start as has been the way of several of the previous books in the series Bad things happen to Falco He has magnificent success and catastrophic reverses All theoose ends are tied up at the end but the resolution feels rather flat An excellent read non the ess The blurb is not entirely accurate Yes This had a pedestrian stage in the early middle but
picked up excitingly towards the end The plot was intricate butup excitingly towards the end The plot was intricate but aid out by Davis My main disappointment was that just when it was building up towards a major triumph of Falco s everything went pear shaped and then it was outside circumstances not Falco s keen intelligence or ow cunning that saved the day. Ding out something he does not know about how things work; this is a good detective story partly because of the exposition of the Roman egal system and not in spite of it It also helps that it is one of the Davis novels in which Falco over reaches and finds himself distinctly out of his depth; he is one of the most attractive of historical detectives because he is not infallible Roz Kaven.
