Time to Depart (Marcus Didius Falco, #7) by Lindsey Davis

Balbinus Pius, the dirtiest underworld organizer in Emperor Vespasians Rome, has been convicted of a capital crime at last, thanks to public servant Petronius Longus, better known to Marcus Didius Falco as his old army buddy Petro. A quirk of Roman law, however, allows every citizen condemned to death time to depart. In other words, he has a chance to skip town. Taking full advantage of the law, Bilbinus embarks on a ship fit for a king, accompanied by his loyal factotums. From the wharf, Falco and Petro watch Balbinus sail off to exile instead of Hades. And the race is on among his competitors to take over his old operations. It begins with a colossal heist at the Emporium, a major trading center. As Falco tries to stem the escalating crime wave, he faces another task almost as daunting: find a new apartment for himself and the woman he loves, a senators daughter forbidden by Roman law to a man of Falcos rank. To make matters even more dangerous, Helen believes shes pregnant. Falcos head - along with other body parts - could be on the chopping block if her condition becomes public.

Time to Depart is a historical mystery crime novel by Lindsey Davis and the seventh book of the Marcus Didius Falco Mysteries series. The title refers to the law which stated that no Roman citizen who had been sentenced to death might be arrested, even after the verdict, until he has been given time to depart , the idea being that for a Roman citizen to choose exile outside the boundaries of the Empire would have been a fate worse than death itself. Falco's closest friend, Petronius Longus, has finally caught one of the leading criminals in Rome, Balbinus Pius. But a quirk in Roman law allows a convicted felon, even a murderer, time to depart before the sentence is carried out. Balbinus' departure has left a vacuum in the underworld of Rome, and there is a crowd of criminals trying desperately to fill the void. Their first step is to engineer a robbery that reverberates throughout the city.
