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...

Listener Opinions

    " Different from their normal adventures as its set in Rome itself and they are under cover in the Praetorian guard. They must uncover many secrets to keep the emperor Claudius (and themselves) alive. Gives a great impression of the harshness of life in Rome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Mcbrearty | 2/6/2014

    " A pretty good entry in this series. This is the first time Scarrow continued a story line from a previous novel. Maybe not as fresh as his earlier work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 1/26/2014

    " A bit slower to start than some of the other books in the series, but good in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ken | 1/22/2014

    " Well worth a read as all the others in the series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter Greenhalgh | 1/21/2014

    " Scarrow is in a class of his own. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neil Morgan | 1/5/2014

    " A good read by a consistent writer. Fun for thsoe interested in Historical fiction. Boys own in the main I feel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phee | 12/18/2013

    " Maybe a little less drawn out battle scenes but I do appreciate that is a huge part of the appeal for others. If anyone else is interested reading books from historians writing about the Roman military machine (pax romana hah!) I recommend Adrian Goldsworthy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vaughan Pendred | 12/10/2013

    " Great fun for a long flight. Pace, historical details,byzantine plot and indestructible heroes! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Cox | 11/28/2013

    " I will say though a good read - I didn't enjoy this book quite as much as the others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ian | 10/30/2013

    " A real return to form for this excellent series from Simon Scarrow. The story lines in recent books were beginning to tend towards being slightly repetitive, but the change in setting has produced a very enjoyable book indeed. Roll on book #12! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Stevens | 10/29/2013

    " A fun read, nothing amazing, enjoyable for those already in the Cato series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andre Domingues | 10/2/2013

    " A diferent plot and a little better than the last 3 books of this series... However I was expecting a better ending ... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simon Williams | 10/16/2012

    " Another brilliant instalment and I thoroughly enjoyed every page (screen really as I read it on my kindle and phone). A different setting to the other books but there is still the recurring theme in that they end up to their necks in sewage at some point. Can't wait for the next book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dougie6t7msn.com | 9/18/2012

    " An excellent book by Simon Scarrow. This was actually the 1st book in the series that I have read and I'll definitely be working back through the instalments. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Catherine | 8/28/2012

    " Not one of his better books in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Todd | 8/21/2012

    " This was a bit of a departure from Scarrow's usual writing since it revolved around Roman politics and the role of the Praetorian guard. Overall I enjoyed reading this book. Although, the series does seem to be dragging out a little. "
