Publisher's Summary

Fresh from his trip to Britain, Falco needs to re-establish his presence in Rome. A minor role in the trial of a senator entangles him in the machinations of Silius Italicus and Paccius Africanus, two real-life lawyers at the top of their trade. These notorious ex-consuls play a dangerous game, where success brings rich pickings but a mistrial or a wrong verdict entails huge financial penalties. The senator is convicted but then dies, apparently by suicide. However, Silius hires Falco and his young associates to prove it was murder.

An Imperial Treasure

You can't go wrong with Falco. He wants to be a ruthless hard case but his tender heart won't let him....his tender heart and Helena, the love of his life! This case shows a more intellectual side to Falco. As usual he is bruised, but Falco also wins some kind of victory in the end. Jamie Glover does a fine job with the narration.

Love this series!

I have read and re-read the books, and now am having fun listening to them on audio. Great narration! These novels have a little bit of something for everyone- they're good mysteries, they're an interesting look at the Roman Empire, and the main character is funny. Smart, but also light and entertaining. So far there has only been one book in the series I haven't absolutely loved.

Not sure about the reader/narrator

I'm a huge fan of The Marcus Didus Falco series. My perfect Falco is Anton Lesser, but I love the reading of Christian Rodska, who has the most fanatastic range of voices. I'm afraid that although I love The Accusers, Jamie Glover's voice just doesn't do it for me.

The Accusers (Unabridged)

An excellent roman mystery told in her usual droll fashion by Lindsey Davis. Falco, aided by his intelligent wife and her brothers weaves his way through the pitfalls of Roman law to solve another crime.
