Publisher's Summary

This novel in the acclaimed Marcus Didius Falco series finds the first-century detective confronting Roman legal forces that may just destroy him - and his family.

Fresh from a trip to far-flung Londinium in Britain, Falco needs to reestablish his presence in Rome. A minor role in the trial of a senator entangles him in the machinations of two powerful lawyers. The senator is convicted but then dies, apparently by suicide. It may have been a legal move to protect his heirs; Falco is hired to prove it was murder.

As he shows off his talents in the role of advocate, Falco exposes himself to a tangle of upper-class secrets and powerful elements in Rome's legal hierarchy that may have unintended - if not fatal - consequences.

Another great story

The story is another intricate mystery, and Mr. Pebble's performance is a delight. I love the period detail, whether accurate or not.

Poor narration quailty

It sounded like the narrator was swapped out every few paragraphs, Story was slow and a little tedious at times.

What on Earth? Pick a Narrator, please!

Where does The Accusers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Love the Falco series, not one of the best but remains enjoyable

How could the performance have been better?

Sweet Lord Jesus, this is only the second time I've had to put an audiobook away due to the narration. There are two narrators and the editor just spliced their performance together at random. Either would be ok, but switching back and forth is jarring. A ridiculous way to destroy an otherwise acceptable book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, narration kept me from finishing in fact.

Any additional comments?

Buy and read the book, this audio isn't worth your time or money due to the multiple narrators.
