Wounds of Honour
- Empire I
- By: Anthony Riches
- Narrated by: Saul Reichlin
- Length: 13 hrs and 32 mins
Thrilling, authentic, and action packed, this novel introduces soldier hero Marcus Valerius: a centurion stationed on Hadrian's Wall in the second century during a revolt against the Roman Empire. Marcus Valerius Aquila has scarcely landed in Britannia when he has to run for his life - condemned to dishonorable death by power-crazed emperor Commodus. The plan is to take a new name, serve in an obscure regiment on Hadrian's Wall, and lie low until he can hope for justice.

Introducing Luke Carlton - ex-Special Boat Service commando and now under contract to MI6 for some of its most dangerous missions. Sent into the steaming Colombian jungle to investigate the murder of a British intelligence officer, Luke finds himself caught up in the coils of a plot that has terrifying international dimensions.
Good but not great.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A better narration as this one was very poor
Would you be willing to try another book from Frank Gardner? Why or why not?
maybe depending on story and narrator
Would you be willing to try another one of John Sackville’s performances?
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
