"What did he eat last? Whom did he eat, in fact?"
Lumbered with working alongside reptilian Chief Spy Anacrites, Falco has the perfect plan to make money - he will assist Vespasian in the Emperor's 'Great Census' of AD 73. His potential fee could finally allow him to join the middle ranks and be worthy of long-suffering Helena Justina.
Unexpectedly confronted with the murder of a man-eating lion, Falco is distracted from his original task, uncovering a bitter rivalry between the gladiators' trainers. With one star gladiator dead, Falco is forced to investigate and the trail leads from Rome to the blood-soaked sand of the arena in North Africa.

"Falco gets a partner"
I this instalment Falco teams up with his arch enemy to make enough money to try and move up a rank, however a murder gets in the way, in this development of the Falco world. The change in narrator is a shame but not a disaster
"Poor choice of narrator"
As above. This is no criticism of Gordon Griffin but he just does not have the right voice for the character he portrays. It weakens the narrative.
With another narrator
Have given up on it
