Publisher's Summary

Rome, AD 71. Marcus Didius Falco is desperate to leave the notorious Lautumiae prison - though being bailed out by his mother is a slight indignity.

Things go from bad to worse when a group of nouveau riche ex-slaves hire him to outwit a fortune-hunting redhead whose husbands have a habit of dying accidentally, leaving him up against a female contortionist, her extra-friendly snake, indigestible cakes, and rent racketeers. All the while Falco tries to lure Helena Justina to live with him, a dangerous proposition given the notorious instability of Roman real estate. In a case of murder as complicated as he ever faced, Falco is at his very finest.

    "Wonderful sense of place"

    A great detective story set in Ancient Rome where the city and its futons become s character in the plot. Falco feels like an old friend. A good performance by Prebble although his accent mag be a bug refined. In some of the other audiobooks in the series, Christian Rodska gives a more textured performance.
