AGENT OF ROME V: THE EMPEROR’S SILVER
Book V is now complete and the edit is coming together. Below is the blurb. Out next summer!
Agent of Rome: The Emperor’s Silver
Still recovering from his previous assignment in Arabia, imperial agent Cassius Corbulo has been spending most of his time and money on women and wine. Unfortunately for him, word of his achievements has reached the emperor Aurelian and he is sent north, tasked with smashing a counterfeiting gang.
Corbulo tracks the criminals to the city of Berytus, where his investigations are hampered by civil unrest and uncooperative officials, not to mention the personal problems of his servant Simo and bodyguard Indavara. Despite this – and intense pressure from his superiors – the young officer eventually closes in on the gang.
But his enemies will do anything to protect their profits, and Cassius and Indavara soon find themselves fighting not only for the Emperor, but for their very survival.
‘Agent of Rome IV: The Black Stone’ out today!
The fourth in the series is released today in hardback and ebook 🙂
AD 273. Obsessed by the solar religions of the east, the emperor Aurelian sets out to obtain every sacred object within his realm. But one – a mysterious rock said to channel the power of the sun god – lies beyond his reach. Warrior-priest Ilaha has captured the legendary stone and is using it to raise an army against Rome.
For Imperial agent Cassius Corbulo and ex-gladiator bodyguard Indavara, stopping him constitutes their greatest challenge yet. Assisted by a squad of undercover soldiers and a Saracen chieftain, they trek south across the deserts of Arabia, encountering sandstorms, murderous money-lenders and a ruthless German mercenary.
And when they finally reach Ilaha’s mountain fortress, they face thousands of warriors who will give their lives to protect him … and the black stone.
