Vespasian is serving as a military officer on the outskirts of the Roman Empire, suppressing local troubles and defending the Roman way. But political events in Rome draw him back to the city. When Caligula becomes emperor, Vespasian believes that things will improve. Instead, he watches his leader deteriorate from being Rome's shining star to a blood-crazed, profligate madman. Lavish building projects, endless games, and public displays of his incestuous relationship with his sister, Drusilla, and a terrified senate are nothing to Caligula's most ambitious plan....
The third title in the best-selling Vespasian series from Roberto Fabbri.

This keeps getting better, including Peter Kenny. If you enjoyed the other two books in the series, this is must-hear.
The unintelligible reader.
Get another reader.
The reader is truly horrible. It's not just the impenetrable Cockney accent he affects when speaking in the voices of his characters. It's his careless enunciation and elisions even when he's speaking in his own voice. He slurs his words and his characters downright mumble at light speed. Maybe he thinks he's Demosthenes and is practicing with marbles in his mouth, but it is impossible for an American listener to enjoy this story. I returned it without even getting through the first chapter. I've spent time throughout the UK, and never encountered anything like this.
Anger. not at the story; at the self-centered and inconsiderate reader.
A waste of money.
