Author slyly introduced real historical character Frontinus on public inquiry with his two "special advisors".

Falco and Helena now have a baby daughter and live in a nicer apartment. Falco and a friend find a hand in a Roman fountain and try to get authorities to take an interest. They find the source of the fountain's water and search houses in the area for someone who would be able to kill and dismember bodies. Despite the gory theme, Davis manages to throw in some good laughs. I had begun to tire of Falco's immature behaviour, but I'm glad I didn't give up, for this is a good read.
