Publisher's Summary

The seventh novel in Anthony Riches' acclaimed Empire sequence brings Marcus Aquila back to Rome, hunting the men who destroyed his family. But the revenge he craves may cost him and those around him dearly. The young centurion's urge to exact his own brutal justice upon the shadowy cabal of assassins who butchered his family means that he must face them on their own ground, risking his own death at their hands.
A senator, a gang boss, a praetorian officer and, deadliest of all, champion gladiator Mortiferum - the Death Bringer - lie in wait. The knives are unsheathed, and ready for blood....

vengeance acquired

strange how all writers of this genre feel the need to have at least one book dedicated to the wranglings of rome itself, and a diversity into the arena, with gladiators at the fore. still, Saul reichlin gives his normal brilliant portrayal of characters and street life. There is also a short story at the end linking characters and storyline worth a listen. but it's eastwards next for our hero and the tungrian cohort, how will they cope with the extreme heat difference of part his and northern brittania.
