Summary

Imperial agent Cassius Corbulo is about to go rogue. His bodyguard, Indavara, has been kidnapped and has seemingly vanished off the face of the earth. Having spent weeks trying to discover his fate, Cassius's time is up: his superiors want him to return to duty. But when an old ally's daughter is enslaved, he feels obliged to repay a long standing debt.
Refusing the offer of a prestigious post, Cassius - and his Christian servant Simo - join nomadic chieftain Kabir and a trio of warriors, determined to rescue the missing girl. Now operating outside the law, the unlikely band journey across the perilous plague-ridden hinterland of Asia Minor, hunting the slavers. But these are no common criminals, and Cassius finds himself up against ruthless, cunning men with powerful friends and a lot to lose.

Up there with the best

I have read and listened to almost a hundred Roman historical fiction books. This series is up there with the best. Narration is first rate. Thoroughly enjoyable all round.

Preposterous

A fantastic story . . . but . . How can there not be the next in the series? I'm sitting on edge wondering what the next steps will be for our 3 heroes. Totally thoughtless of the author not to have an other book ready for me after this. I just cant wait. Come on, someone, please, get the next book out.
