From the Publisher
The brand new thrilling Roman adventure - a Top Ten bestseller in
hardback - from Simon Scarrow, author of THE
LEGION and THE GLADIATOR.
The city of Rome in AD 50 is a dangerous place. Treachery lurks on
every corner, and a shadowy Republican movement, 'the Liberators',
has spread its tentacles wide. It is feared that the heart of the
latest plot lies in the ranks of the Praetorian Guard. Uncertain of
whom he can trust, the Imperial Secretary Narcissus summons to Rome
two courageous men guaranteed to be loyal to the grave: army
veterans Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro.
Tasked with infiltrating the Guard, Cato and Macro face a daunting
test to win the trust of their fellow soldiers. No sooner have they
begun to unearth the details of the Liberators' devious plan than
disaster strikes: an old enemy who could identify them, with deadly
consequences, makes an unexpected appearance. Now they face a race
against time to save their own lives before they can unmask the
mastermind behind the Liberators...
