One of the stories from the bestselling historical fiction Falco series. 'Rats are always bigger than you expect...' Marcus Didius Falco, ancient Rome's hangdog investigator, hates sharing a cell with a rodent - though being bailed by his old mother is almost as embarassing. His highborn girlfriend can't decide if she wants him and Titus Caesar's reward for past services is a wet fish. Hoping for a better life, or at least a better apartment, he takes on new clients. On the elegant slopes of the Pincian Hill, three nouveaux riches freedmen with two flashy wives are under siege by a clever redhead. Severina Zotica has a foul-mouthed parrot, an odd connection with a snake dancer - and averysuspicious past. As he pursues this flame-haired fortune-hunter, Falco finds himself beset by violent rent-racketeers, poisoners, and women without consciences who have dangerous designs on him...

The gift of life's eternal wisdom! The cross and loop or circle symbol known as the Ankh has come to be one of the most widely recognized symbols in the world--honored and/or used in rituals by many religions in many cultures around the globe and through time. It gained huge popularity in the 60s when it became an anti-establishment, anti-war symbol, as Lon Milo Duquette points out in his introduction. The Ankh: Key of Life includes a silver-colored Ankh on a black silken cord and an informative illustrated book about the Ankh's history and meaning plus a plethora of ideas for wearing and using your Ankh in a meaningful way. If any symbol on earth could hold such power it is certainly the Ankh. It is the consensus among many modern esotericists that the Ankh was designed to be recognized by the ancient eye as a simple sandal strap. This is my favorite theory for it suggests to me the secret that life is a journey each of us must make one step at a time. It's simply a matter of going--a process of voluntary movement--a willed commitment to move on, move up, and become something greater than we now are. *Features a silver-colored Ankh pendant on a silken cord
