I couldn't get a Kindle edition of the next book in the series, so I grabbed the BBC audio production. Very nicely done, even if I get the impression it was heavily abridged (obviously it would have to be, clocking in at only 3 hours or so) and the acting does away with some of the tight prose I came to expect from the first book. Still, a nice little story that's told well.

Margaret I read the first 5 or so of these and really enjoyed them. Silver Pigs was probably my favorite.

Mike Thanks for the heads up! :)

I'm going to try the next one and see if it grabs me the way the first one did.

Right now I'm trying out the first book in another Roman series called Under the Eagle, which is funny because it takes place just 30 years before the Falco books and Vespasian (Emperor in the Falco books) is the legate of the soldiers it follows.

Margaret Oh, please let me know how that one is! I love reading about the Romans--especially when it seems well-researched.
