Mystery & Suspense • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

As Roman "informer" Marcus Didius Falco travels to Greece to investigate the murder of a young woman, Golden Voice Christian Rodska delivers a wonderful account of Falco's journey with his entourage of wife, nephews, household staff, adopted daughter, and dog. Rodska slurps and drools as a sleazy travel agent trying to sell Falco a pricey tour; in sum, he turns in a performance liberally sprinkled with humor, rapid-fire exchanges, stunning surprises, and genuine tenderness. As the travelogue unfolds, including visits to the Acropolis, the Delphic Oracle, and the temple of Olympian Zeus, the mystery deepens and the body count rises. Rodska's accomplished acting makes this seventeenth Marcus Didius Falco mystery one of the best. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
