Here we have the fourteenth novel in a whodunit series starring Marcus Didius Falco, a Roman investigator of the first century A.D. This time, a visit to in-laws in the backwater of Londinium, Britannia, leads to murder, intrigue, and a diplomatic crisis. The humor marking the earlier Falco adventures seems muted here, possibly because narrator Christian Rodska ignores much of it. He reads accurately, if not with much variety, in a London accent and slightly strident timbre. Fortunately, his approach--not too light, not too heavy--lets much of the book’s charm and color shine through. Y.R. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
