    Ruso and Tilla, now newlyweds, have moved back to Britannia, where Ruso's old friend and colleague Valens has promised to help him find work. But it isn't the kind of work he'd had in mind - Ruso is tasked with hunting down a missing tax man named Julius Asper. Of course, there's also something else missing: money. And the council of the town of Verulamium is bickering over what's become of it. Compelled to delve deeper by a threat from his old sparring partner, Metellus, Ruso discovers that the good townsfolk may not be as loyal to Rome as they like to appear.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would recommend this book. It is always delightful not to know how a story will end and the author didn't give it away.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Caveat Emptor?

    The funeral was memorable when it was obvious that so few people cared about the victims.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not sure


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The fact that the main character's wife would never have a child due to her own past and he decided he lover her enough to stay with her


    Any additional comments?

    very entertaining!

    Every seven years, on the seventh day of the seventh month, strange things happen. It began when three young boys - Caleb, Fox, and Gage - went on a camping trip to the Pagan Stone. And 21 years later, it will end in a showdown between evil and the boys who have become men - and the women who love them.

    I loved the narrative bouncing around the three different (male) characters giving three different points of view. It was also fun to have a male as a main character

    Always leave a little salt on the bread. Ikey Solomon's favorite saying is also his way of doing business, and in the business of thieving he's very successful indeed. Ikey's partner in crime is his mistress, the forthright Mary Abacus, until misfortune befalls them. They are parted and each must make the harsh journey from thriving nineteenth century London to the convict settlement of Van Diemen's Land.

    If you could sum up The Potato Factory in three words, what would they be?

    Amazing performance and story


    What did you like best about this story?

    The historical background of a time often thought of as idyllic.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Potato Factory and why?

    That is a true problem pick since they were all so well developed. I think it is a tie between Mary Abacus and Icky Solomon.


    Any additional comments?

    Well work listening to. This will open your eyes to the value of human life in the past and how we have improved, though we are not perfect by a longshot

    His name is Ares, and the fate of mankind rests on his powerful shoulders. If he falls to the forces of evil, the world falls too. As one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, he is far stronger than any mortal, but even he cannot fight his destiny forever. Not when his own brother plots against him.

    "My name is Mike Ross. I'm a Ferryman. I help people with ghost problems, or ghosts with people problems. Funny thing, no one ever helps me with my problems. Civil War ghosts bent on killing me, Skinwalkers who just want my body, and a vindictive spirit linked both to my bloodline and my destiny... It turns out the dead still hold a good deal of influence over the world, and they don't want to give it up. I'm in way over my head. Fortunately, I'm too stubborn to quit."
