Synopsis: One fine day in AD 70, scruffy, working-class informer Marcus Didius Falco literally runs into a beautiful sixteen-year-old girl on the steps of the Forum. Falco finds himself in an inhospitable outpost of the Empire called Britain, where the weather is awful, the natives restless, and the women angry. If he does not tread carefully, the perilous puzzle of the silver pigs could be the death of him. Anton Lesser and Fritha Goodey star in this BBC Radio full-cast dramatization of Lindsey Davis's first Falco novel.
Product Description: Rome. AD 70. Private eye Marcus Didius Falco knows his way around the eternal city. He can handle the muggers, the police and most of the girls. But one fresh sixteen-year-old, Sosia Camillina, finds him a case no Roman should be getting his nose into. Some friends, Romans and countrymen are doing a highly profitable, if highly illegal, trade in silver ingots or pigs. For Falco it's the start of a murderous trail that leads far beyond the seven hills.
