A true, historical love story from the bestselling author of the Falco novels.

The love story of the Emperor Vespasian, who brought peace to Rome after years of strife, and his mistress, the freed slave woman Antonia Caenis, this book recreates Ancient Rome's most turbulent period -- the reigns of Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius and Nero, and Vespasian's rise to power.
