Anton Lesser and Anna Madeley star in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Lindsey Davis's second best-selling Falco novel featuring the Roman detective.

Rome, AD 71. Against his better judgement, Marcus Didius Falco secretly disposes of a decayed corpse for the Emperor Vespasian, then heads for the beautiful Bay of Naples with his friend Petronius. He conveniently forgets to mention to his companion that this will be no holiday. They have been sent to investigate the murderous members of a failed coup, now sunning themselves in luxurious villas and on fancy yachts in Neapolis, Capreae, and Pompeii. The idyllic seaside location fails to help his doomed romance with Helena Justina, whom Falco met and courted so stormily in The Silver Pigs. The deeper he probes, the more it seems that Helena is inextricably connected to the elite plotters, in ways that the smitten Falco cannot bear to contemplate. Download and start listening now!

    " Okay, I didn't actually finish the book. I. love the period, but could neither get interested in the main character nor the mystery. "

    " It wasn't bad, the story. But because it was dramatised, there were several voices. The "voice" for Marcus Didius Falco is different than in the first book in the series. I preferred the actor in the first book who sounded more like what I imagined Falco would sound like. However, this story cleans up the "mess" in "The Silver Pigs", the first book. "

    " For me this was the first Falco novel I read and I was immediately hooked on the fresh and different Roman PI and his redoubtable girlfriend. Davis manages to bring every day plebeian Roman life to credible life and Falco makes a likeable, bumbling PI. "

    " A fun mystery with some nice twists, and definitely an interesting setting. I'll probably continue with the series at some point. "
