Would you try another book written by Lindsey Davis or narrated by Thomas Judd?
This book is not really a Flavia Albia story but about her adopted brother. Having read all of the Falcons books, I was disappointed to find that this book is actually aimed at a young market, and feel that this should have been made clear. Because of this, the plot is quite weak and just downright silly in places.
Any additional comments?
I enjoyed this book, mostly. The storyline weakened as the tale drew to a close. I thoroughly enjoyed the narrator - Thomas Judd was perfect. I was reminded of how Falco may have sounded as a precocious young Roman. Or how T.D. Fitzgerald ("The Great Brain" series) would have been portrayed as an early Roman rather than growing up in early Utah. I would have preferred a longer tale with more development. Or a conclusion that seemed less rushed. However, I liked the listen; would purchase it again; would return for a sequel. Furthermore, this short will likely prove to be the seque I needed to begin the Flavian Alba series.

Well, now we know. Falco and company lived on. Postumos the abandoned babe is growing up and shows his smarts and not so smarts as he visits his mother at the circus. Fun short ride.
