Publisher's Summary

In Roman times, the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World held a deep fascination. Two of them were in Egypt: the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Lighthouse at Alexandria. Marcus Didius Falco's wife, Helena Justina, is determined to see them before her next confinement.Conveniently, he has an uncle with a house in Alexandria. For this innocent reason (he says) they sail to Egypt. As soon as they arrive in Alexandria, a suspicious death occurs at the famous Great Library. The authorities rapidly hand Falco the investigation; he is, after all, the well-known informer from Rome and the Emperor Vespasian's fixer. He was one of the last to see the victim alive and, should the investigation fail, it is he who'll get the blame...

Brilliant Falco!

I am a relative newcomer to the Falco series of novels. My introduction to Falco was the BBC serialisations on Radio 4, of which I am very fond. However I have found that the unabridged audio books are so much better!

Lindsey Davis has managed to bring us another lively, witty and clever installment; with characters that are as fresh and interesting as in the "Silver Pigs", yet have developed and matured. Alexandria is perhaps not as laugh out loud funny as Saturnalia, but is an excellent listen all the same.

Christian Rodska's narration of Alexandria and the other books in the series, brings MDF, Helena and the other characters to life with voices that are just so right!

The combination of the novel and the narration make this a superb audiobook.
