Publisher's Summary

Marcus Didius Falco is about to get involved in a nasty noir crime, involving gangsters, gladiators, and romance.

For Falco, a relaxed visit to his wife Helena's relatives in Britain suddenly turns serious. He and his family are staying in London when Falco is summoned to the scene of a murder. The victim, Verovolcus, was a renegade with ties to Roman crime magnates operating in London, but he was also close to King Togidubnus. So when he is discovered dead, stuffed headfirst down a well, a tricky diplomatic situation develops that Falco must defuse.

His investigation leads him into the seedy underbelly of London. There is a newly built amphitheater in town, one with female gladiators, but Falco soon realizes that the initially troublesome gladiators - including one from his own bachelor past - may just give him the edge he needs to solve Verovolcus' murder, as the gangsters are pursued back to the Italian town of Ostia for a final showdown.

Usually love Simon Prebble as narrator BUT....

Simon Prebble is one of my favorite narrators and I will sometimes select books just based upon Prebble being the narrator BUT he's just not the right narrator for this series. Falco is a bit of a rogue and Prebble's tony accent just doesn't work for the role. The story itself is good - I had read the book a long time ago and liked it enough to hear it as an encore. Too bad, I really love this series and this is the second Falco book I've tried with Prebble as narrator but my ear just doesn't hear Falco when Prebble speaks.
