A pleasant duty round as Praetor in Campania erupts into violence when a young girl is found murdered and her admirer is accused of the killing. But Decius Caecilius Metellus the younger believes him innocent and hopes to save the youth from the death sentence he himself will otherwise have to proclaim. As possible witnesses also start to disappear or die, finding the needed proof becomes almost impossible. Twists and turns set in a debauched society even by Roman standards all told with deliciously dry humour and, as usual, nicely narrated by John Lee. Delicious.

Airways terrific stories and I can't say enough about John Lee. He's among the very best in the audio book business.
What about John Lee’s performance did you like?
He is a great narrator, I will be looking to see if he is narrating any other books!
Any additional comments?
Explains life in Rome, as you would imagine it might be. Slavery is common, everybody seems to own a few. Historical characters are involved and you get a feeling Rome was not such a good place even for the nobles.
