The brand new thrilling Roman adventure from the bestselling 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...
