I am a big fan of the Falco series, and whilst I'm enjoying the story I'm afraid the reader is very disappointing. For me Christian Rodska really has this character sewn up, he has made it his own. I have nothing against Gordon Griffin as a reader, he has a very pleasant voice, just not as Falco. I am missing the cheeky, wide-boy that comes across in a Christian Rodska reading

Would you try another book written by Lindsey Davis or narrated by Gordon Griffin?
Yes, previously I have always enjoyed the Falco series. The narration was fine, the story long drawn out and boring.
Has Last Act in Palmyra put you off other books in this genre?
No, I must assume this was written at a low time.
Which character – as performed by Gordon Griffin – was your favourite?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Last Act in Palmyra?
About tow thirds of the middle.
Any additional comments?
I can't believe I stuck with it to the end.

I was a big fan of the BBC didius falco stories. The one downside to the BBC version was always the fast pace with which the story was told and unfolded. For this reason I chose this full audio version. Unfortunately I have to conclude that this audio book really disappointed. The narrator was unconvincing (missed the different BBC voices) and the story was tediously slow. Unneeded chapters and poor plots. Also the ending was quite predictable. Perhaps it was just this one book from the series but the former fresh and cocky Marcus was replaced by a lovestruck blundering gentleman. Little bit like the new Bond movie remake. In all I would not recommend the book.
