It is spring 45 AD and Centurions Macro and Cato, dismissed from the Second Legion in Britain, are trapped in Rome, waiting for their involvement in the death of a fellow officer to be investigated. It is then that the imperial secretary, the devious Narcissus, makes them an offer they can't refuse: to rescue an imperial agent who has been captured by pirates operating from the Illyrian coast. With him were scrolls vital to the safety of the Emperor and the future of Rome. However, Narcissus also sends Vitellius, an old enemy of the two centurions. The three officers set out from Ravenna with the imperial fleet but the pirates are forewarned and the Romans pay a heavy price.

Outnumbered by the enemy, surrounded by rumours of treachery, and endangered by Vitellius' desire to redeem him, Centurions Macro and Cato must find the pirate base to avert a disaster that could destroy the Emperor.

    " Another good one in the Scarrow series following 2 Centurions. Totally improbable 2 soldiers in any army could survive all these 2 have been trough but what the heck...still a good read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cal | 12/6/2013

    " Great read and hard to put down. I find his books a bit formulaic but they are compelling. Like Sharpe and Harper, Aubrey and Maturin, Kirk and Spock, Cato and Macro will live to fight another day! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Todd | 11/27/2013

    " Great story with excellent descriptions of the times and actions scenes. Recommend if you are looking to continue with the saga of Cato and Marco. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evan Macbeth | 7/19/2013

    " Great build up and development of characters and storylines in this one, along with a nice shift of setting and circumstances (Naval engagements etc). Too bad my library doesn't have any of the books after this one, as I'd like to keep going. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 6/20/2013

    " Number six and old enmities are renewed. And new ones become increasingly devious. Great read,showing us some of the rest of the ancient world. Back stabbing was just as big back then as it is now and Macro and Cato are again in the thick of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bart Robinson | 3/10/2013

    " Macro and Cato are back in the sixth book of the Scarrow series about a Roman Legion. The books are well written and a very enjoyable way to learn a little more about Roman History and battles. "

    " This will have to be the last Scarrow I read for a while...I'm full. I'll look for him again perhaps at some point when he can learn to write without a British "accent"..... :) "

    " Another book passed on to me by my mom--wouldn't have thought to read it, but it was a fun read. "
