‘Saturnalia’ is the 18th Lindsey Davis title to feature her recurring Informer and Imperial Agent, Marcus Didius Falco. Set in Rome during the winter holiday of Saturnalia, when days are short and nights are brought to life through wild partying, events take a complex turn when a woman due to be executed escapes death, just as a young man with everything to live for meets his end.
It soon falls upon Falco to find the dangerous fugitive - a desperate challenge he must race to fulfil in order to prevent the shaming of the government and the unanimous anger of the demos. As ghosts of the past and present trip him up along the way, Falco is a man with plenty on his mind, including lost love and his continued rivalry against the Chief Spy Anacrites.
Bestselling author Lindsey Davis is highly regarded for her thrilling murder mysteries set in Ancient Rome. She has understandably been described as one of the best writers of the genre and her character, Falco, has charmed and intrigued audiences on a wide scale.
Now this complete and unabridged reading of a compelling Marcus Didius Falco mystery, beautifully orated by Christian Rodska, can be yours to own on CD or MP3 audiobook, and makes a welcome and unusual addition to any audiobook crime thriller collection.
