Publisher's Summary

One fine day, A.D. 70, Sosia Camillina quite literally runs into Marcus Didius Falco on the steps of the Forum. It seems Sosia is on the run from a couple of street toughs, and after a quick and dirty rescue, P.I. Falco wants to know why.Falco finds out that Sosia, the niece of a highly placed senator, holds the secret to a stockpile of silver pigs, ingots intended for no good use. Hoping for future favors from Sosia's powerful uncle, Falco embarks on an intricate case of smuggling, murder, and treason that reaches into the palace itself. And if he does not tread lightly, the treacherous puzzle of the silver pigs could buy him a one-way ticket to his own funeral pyre.

Silver pigs.

An excellent radio adaptation of the first Falco book. I first came across Anton Lesser in audio books and he's an excellent MDF. His asides and wit amused the whole family. It is very sad that Fritha Goodey's passing prevented her playing Helena Justina in the following dramatisations- she was excellent. The right degree of upper class. This is one that will keep coming out of the cupbord.
