> Marcus Falco in the Lindsey Davis is a (fairly low level) hero
with only average combat skills -- he's not a tax collector, but he is an informer.

In 'Two for the Lions', he spends much of the book as a tax collector.

Later on, he gets Vespasian to rule in his favour after being outmanouvered in a dispute over his commission - a heroic bureaucratic deed!
