In this installment in the Marcus Didius Falco series, it is A.D. 72, and Falco's new Roman bathhouse is emitting a foul odor. The cause is a dead body, but before he can investigate, he is sent to faraway Britannia to start an inquiry into financial problems and numerous "accidents" besetting the king of the Atrebetes's building plans. Christian Rodska’s performance offers a variety of character voices and accents and an ability to deliver the witty lines with understated humor. Listeners will need to pay close attention to keep track of all the characters, not because of the voices, which are distinct and consistent, but because there are so many, all with Roman names, of course.
