Christian Rodska reads Lindsey Davis' bestselling Marcus Didius Falco novel – complete and unabridged.
When the authorities of the Roman Empire refuse to investigate the murders of two tourists - a newly-wed woman and young girl - it’s up to the nation’s favourite toga-sporting private eye Marcus Didius Falco to step in and crack the unjust case.
Complications arise when Falco and his wife Helena set out to meet the touring group amongst whom the two ladies were killed. As they pass through the ancient hotspots of Olympia, Corinth, Delphi and Athens, Falco soon manages to deduct that a number of the people in the touring party are hiding vital clues. Will Falco and his wife manage to get to the bottom of what is possibly their most challenging case yet, in the face of the outstanding Seven Sights?
‘See Delphi and Die’ is the 17th title in Lindsey Davis’ bestselling Falco series.
