Publisher's Summary

Anton Lesser and Anna Madeley star in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Lindsey Davis's second best-selling Falco novel featuring the Roman detective.Rome, AD 71. Against his better judgement, Marcus Didius Falco secretly disposes of a decayed corpse for the Emperor Vespasian, then heads for the beautiful Bay of Naples with his friend Petronius. He conveniently forgets to mention to his companion that this will be no holiday. They have been sent to investigate the murderous members of a failed coup, now sunning themselves in luxurious villas and on fancy yachts in Neapolis, Capreae, and Pompeii. The idyllic seaside location fails to help his doomed romance with Helena Justina, whom Falco met and courted so stormily in The Silver Pigs. The deeper he probes, the more it seems that Helena is inextricably connected to the elite plotters, in ways that the smitten Falco cannot bear to contemplate.

Shadows in Bronze, by Lindsey Davis

After enjoying "The Silver Pigs," narrated by Christian Rodska, I was delighted to try Lindsey Davis' Shadows in Bronze," dramatized. I thought I would prefer a dramatized version over a narrated one. But the actor who plays Marcus Didius Falco sounds like a woman, and I could not easily get used to it. I got mixed up! This is of course my fault, and I will start the drama over and try again. Christian Rodska does a fine job portraying both women and men in his narration of "The Silver Pigs."

Very abridged. The pace of the drama is fast. After 10 minutes, I had no clue what was going on, and didn't finish.
