Publisher's Summary

Marcus Didius Alexander Postumus is a special boy. He is 12 or perhaps 11. He has two mothers and various possible fathers, so he worries who will take care of him. He is self-confident yet vulnerable, intelligent yet sinister. He knows not many people like him.
When his birth mother, Thalia the snake-dancer, takes him to live with her troupe of exotic performers, Postumus sees it as useful experience even though it involves him mucking out menagerie cages. No one anticipates how much havoc he will wreak. On his first day a tragedy occurs. No one else cares, so Postumus decides he alone must solve this crime and impose retribution on the guilty.
As son and brother to the famous investigators Falco and Albia, he knows murder is punished by execution. Postumus single-mindedly sets out to accomplish this, sidetracked by nothing, not even a rehearsal of Falco's legendary play The Spook Who Spoke....

Precocious Postumus!

Obviously this is not a hard hitting detective story, but I giggled all the way through this novelette. A very authentic feeling and charming tale of pre-adolescent destruction - too clever Ms Davis!

Not Really a Flavia Albia Story

Would you try another book written by Lindsey Davis or narrated by Thomas Judd?

This book is not really a Flavia Albia story but about her adopted brother. Having read all of the Falcons books, I was disappointed to find that this book is actually aimed at a young market, and feel that this should have been made clear. Because of this, the plot is quite weak and just downright silly in places.
