Posted inNick Brown|Comments Off on Agent of Rome: Tarchon is out now
I am currently writing a new Agent of Rome novel. This will feature Tarchon – who appeared as a veteran in The Earthly Gods – but as a young man. He’s a similar age to Cassius but comes from a very different world – the tough streets of Byzantium. Even so, I’m aiming for the same mix of action and intrigue. More news soon!

I just passed 95,000 words of the new – and final – Cassius Corbulo novel. If all goes well, it will be published this summer. I’ll soon be talking to a cover artist and will also be including an in-depth interview featuring questions from readers. More to come soon!
Posted inNick Brown|Comments Off on Agent of Rome VII: The Last Battle
This week I’ve finally started on book VII. My deal with UK publishers Hodder & Stoughton finished with book VI and although the books have done fairly well, the performance wasn’t strong enough for them to justify any more. My agent is currently looking at alternatives but these days self-publishing is a viable option so that may well be the way we go. I’m very busy with screenplays and various other projects but wil aim to finish this year. The book is provisionally titled ‘The Last Battle’ and sees Cassius and Indavara finally head west to join Aurelian’s campaign against his last significant foe, the usurper Tetricus. This will be a momentous tale with life-changing consequences for all the main characters. Thanks to everyone who has supported the series to date. More details to follow! Nick.

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.
