Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Huw Evans | 12/11/2013

    " A return to form for Lynsey Davis. MDFalco and his sidekicks are back in Britain resurrecting the unpleasant memories of his previous trips. the book centres around the Romanisation of Britannia and the conflicts that it presents all involved. How much acceptance of hegemony is real, how much is lip service and how much is hidden beneath the stucco and mosaics. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jack | 12/1/2013

    " A real good mystery -= good historical information - a real page turner at the end "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary Sue | 12/1/2013

    " This could be a mediocre situation comedy set in AD 75, Roman controlled Britain. Characters are pleasant, plot practically non-existant, dialogue hopelessly modern. Don't read this as historical fiction. Don't read this as a mystery. Don't read this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy Dolan | 11/22/2013

    " Another inventive and well written story. Really enjoying these novels and wondering why it's taken me so long to discover them. Christian Rodska narrates very well and to me is becoming Falco. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam Quigley | 11/4/2013

    " I love this whole series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthiaj | 10/26/2013

    " Absolutely great story. Although I feel for Marcus and Helena as they seem to be trapped in Britania. Maybe Davis will let them come home to Rome in the next one. I will anxiously await... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lizzie Robinson | 10/8/2013

    " This is my favourite book of the whole series as it sets up some interesting story lines for the future whilst very satisfactorily concluding others. It also gives us a tantalising glimpse in to Falco's previous relationships. Watch out for the bumble bee scene, it is just so cute. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirby | 6/1/2013

    " I always love Falco. Trouble seems to catch up to him no matter where he goes and what he does to avoid it. In this Davis novel she teaches us about the uncivilized land now known now as London, and its Roman administration and history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roshni | 5/6/2013

    " Great book. The ancient Roman theme makes a nice addition. The complex plot and likeable characters make this book well worth the read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Travis | 1/2/2013

    " One of my favorites from the Falco series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 11/8/2012

    " c2002: FWFTB: downtown, murder, well, gangsters, Londinium. Back to form again. Another brilliant set piece with the arena show down and a lot more emotional connections. Loved this particular one. The normal characters all make a showing with a new one thrown in for luck. Highly recommended. "

    " Marcus - What a guy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee | 3/12/2012

    " When it comes to Marcus Didius Falco, I don't have much to say in the negative. A detective series set in Rome with sharp dialogue? I can't ask for more; other than Lindsey Davis to just keep on writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie | 11/10/2011

    " I have read this whole series. I love anything ancient Rome. It is fun mystery series. "

    " The one in Londinium with the tribal chieftain stuck down a well, the re-appearance of Falco's ex and in which we realise London has not much changed over the years.... "
