I'm firmly in the 'can't beat a Lindsey Davis' camp; here is another layered, twisting plot played out against an evocative, insightful landscape. Hooray for a Roman post-feminist heroine and interesting female characters!
Such a shame the narration was so flat, Sarah Feathers sounding for all the world like a bored and distracted Kirsty Allsop. It meant that I frequently tuned out and had to re-listen to big sections at a time. Audio books are immensely valuable to me as something to listen to whilst doing something else - driving, housework, etc, so the narration as well as plot has to capture me; Lucy Brown and Jane Collingwood both managed it admirably in the previous tales of Flavia Albia. I'd happily cough up for a retake, Audible...?
