Publisher's Summary

Anton Lesser and Anna Madeley star in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Lindsey Davis's second best-selling Falco novel featuring the Roman detective. Rome, AD 71. Against his better judgement, Marcus Didius Falco secretly disposes of a decayed corpse for the Emperor Vespasian, then heads for the beautiful Bay of Naples with his 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 in Neapolis, Capreae, and Pompeii. The idyllic seaside location fails to help his doomed romance with Helena Justina, whom Falco met and courted so stormily in The Silver Pigs. The deeper he probes, the more it seems that Helena is inextricably connected to the elite plotters, in ways that the smitten Falco cannot bear to contemplate.

What is there not to like?

Very entertaining rendition of the Marcus Didius books - I loved the background noises and felt I really was in Rome. Loved it.

Yet another great book by Lindsey Davis.

What more can I say about this audio book. Great story, great cast and an altogether wonderful experience. 2 hours 41 minutes spent in the company of Anton Lesser as the hero of our story... Marcus Didius Falco. Anna Madeley plays our heroin Helena Justina, a senetors daughter and above Falco's position in life.

If you've read, or listened, to any of these stories then you know what to expect. If you're a newcomer then...WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?
Seriously though, if you're thinking about purchasing this then start with the first Falco book/audiobook 'The Silver Pigs'.
