Publisher's Summary

I was the new boy, so they saddled me with the worst jobs. Rome, AD 71. Against his better judgement, Falco secretly disposes of a decayed corpse for the Emperor Vespasian, then heads for the beautiful Bay of Naples with his best friend Petronius. He conveniently forgets to mention to his companion that this will be no holiday. They have been sent to investigate the murderous members of a failed coup, now sunning themselves in luxurious villas and on fancy yachts.
The idyllic seaside location further complicates his seemingly doomed romance with Helena Justina. The deeper he probes, the more it seems Helena is inextricably connected to the elite plotters, in ways that the smitten Falco cannot bear to contemplate.

Enjoyable read

Enjoyed the story but prefer Christian Rodska as narrator - he sounded more realistic. Will definitely read more by this author.

good story, performed by pensioner!

What did you like best about Shadows in Bronze? What did you like least?

this follow up story from 'The Silver Pigs' is wonderful, but the narration is now taken over by a man who is obviously elderly and has a trick of tailing off his sentences which robs the narrative of any excitement.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Falco and Helena Justina. because it is about their relationship and the tragedy which befalls

How could the performance have been better?


Do you think Shadows in Bronze needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

it's already got a whole library of follow ups.

Any additional comments?

just change the narrator. Gordon Griffin sounds like a nice guy, but his narration robs the story of any emotion.
