    All along the Mediterranean coast, the Roman Empire's richest citizens are relaxing in their luxurious villas, enjoying the last days of summer. But the carefree lifestyle and gorgeous weather belie an impending cataclysm, and only one man is worried. The young engineer Marcus Attilius Primus has just taken charge of the Aqua Augusta, the enormous aqueduct that brings fresh water to a quarter of a million people in nine towns around the Bay of Naples. His predecessor has disappeared.

    Overall

    This book draws you in not only because of the exqusite detail but because of the human drama. You'll find yourself easily able to see the hustle and bustle of a live Pompeii. You'll see the characters as real people and you'll want to know more. You can almost smell the sulphur in the air as the climax builds.

    One word of warning - if you listen to this in your car you'll find yourself sitting in parking lots reluctant to leave Pompeii and return to the real world. If you only enjoy it half as much as I did, it will be time well spent.
