Publisher Description

It's the first century A.D. and Marcus Didius Falco, Ancient Rome's favorite son and sometime palace spy, has just been dealt a lousy blow from the gods: The beautiful, high-born Helena Justina has left him in the dust. So when the Emperor Vespasian calls upon him to investigate an act of treason, Falco is more than ready for a distraction. Disguised as an idle vacationer in the company of his best friend Petronius, Falco travels from the Isle of Capreae to Neapolis and all the way to the great city of Pompeii…where a whole new series of Herculean events—involving yet another conspiracy, and a fateful meeting with his beloved Helena—are about to erupt….

Lindsey Davis' Shadows in Bronze is historical mystery at its best.

Great book, numerous (100's) typo's!!!

Love the book and series, BUT... This download contains 100's (not exaggerating) of typo's. Examples: words that started with Li such as Like would appear as Uke as the Li was typed as a U. I came out as a \. In many cases the letters were so jumbled that it was impossible to maintain the flow of reading. I had to stop and decode the word based on the context. The book in portrait is about 1600 iPhone pages. At least 1 out of 3 pages had errors, many pages with multiple errors! More iBooks like this and I will go back to paper!!!! If I could have figured out how to get a refund, I would have demanded one! However, Lindsey Davis' writing is so great to read, that I persevered. Any lesser book....
