Publisher's Summary

The Silver Pigs is the classic novel that introduced people around the world to Marcus Didius Falco, a private informer with a knack for trouble, a tendency for bad luck, and a frequently inconvenient drive for justice.

When Marcus Didius Falco encounters the young and very pretty Sosia Camillina in the Forum, he senses immediately that there is something amiss. When she confesses that she is fleeing for her life, Falco offers to help her and, in doing so, gets himself mixed up in a deadly plot involving stolen ingots, dangerous and dark political machinations, and, most hazardous of all, one Helena Justina - a brash, indomitable senator's daughter connected to the very traitors that Falco has sworn to expose.

    "Excellent Narrator, Good Story"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story was entertaining, if not complex.


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

    Excellent narrator, he brought Falco to vivid life.


    Was The Silver Pigs worth the listening time?

    I listen to books during my commute. This was a good choice as I could easily pick up the story if I zoned out for a few minutes, and I was able to keep track of the characters by ear with no problem.

    "Fun way to learn political and cultural history"

    Silver Pigs is only the beginning. Falco has a rough exterior but a soft heart.
