"What did he eat last? Whom did he eat, in fact?"
Lumbered with working alongside reptilian Chief Spy Anacrites, Falco has the perfect plan to make money - he will assist Vespasian in the Emperor's 'Great Census' of AD 73. His potential fee could finally allow him to join the middle ranks and be worthy of long-suffering Helena Justina.
Unexpectedly confronted with the murder of a man-eating lion, Falco is distracted from his original task, uncovering a bitter rivalry between the gladiators' trainers. With one star gladiator dead, Falco is forced to investigate and the trail leads from Rome to the blood-soaked sand of the arena in North Africa.

Poor choice of narrator

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

As above. This is no criticism of Gordon Griffin but he just does not have the right voice for the character he portrays. It weakens the narrative.

Would you be willing to try another book from Lindsey Davis? Why or why not?

With another narrator

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Gordon Griffin?

Christian Rodska

Was Two for the Lions worth the listening time?

Have given up on it

Any additional comments?

Not the usual standard

There seemed to be a large section in the middle that was given over to background or scene setting. It just didn't move along at the usual pace. The start and finish were crisp but it got bogged down in the middle.
