ROMAN GAMES by Bruce Macbain (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). Rome, A.D. 96. When a notorious senatorial informer and libertine is found stabbed to death in his bedroom, his slaves are suspected. Pliny, a respectable young senator and lawyer, is ordered by the emperor to investigate. However, the Roman Games have just begun, and for the next fifteen days the law courts are in recess. If Pliny can’t identify the murderer in that time, Verpa’s entire slave household will be burned alive in the arena. Pliny teams up with a starving author and denizen of the Roman demimonde. Pooling their talents, they unravel a plot involving Jewish and Christian “atheists,” Egyptian cultists, and a missing horoscope that forecasts the emperor’s death. Their investigation leads them into the heart of the palace, and as the deadline approaches, Pliny struggles with the painful dilemma of a good man forced to serve a brutal regime. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie® Award-winning narrator, Bronson Pinchot. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. •EXPERIENCE.
