BLURB

The Roman Empire’s conquest of Britannia is under threat from within.

A messenger on the streets of Rome has been intercepted and tortured, revealing a plot to sabotage the Roman army’s campaign against Caratacus, commander of Britannia’s native tribes. A treacherous agent’s mission is to open a second front of attack against them and eliminate the two Roman soldiers who could stand in the way.

Unwarned, Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro are with the Roman army pursuing Caratacus and his men through the mountains of Britannia. Defeating Caratacus seems within their grasp. But the plot against the two heroes threatens not only their military goals but also their lives.

Includes 2 maps and Roman army organisation chart.

REVIEW

Another rousing adventure for Cato and Macro. Another excellent addition to the series. On the trail of Rome’s worst nightmare in Britannia, the redoubtable and seemingly invincible Caratacus, our dynamic duo are once again the playthings of palace intrigue. A well conceived plot full of action and surprises…I thought for sure I knew who the traitor in their midst was…I was wrong…😊… So my fellow readers, if you’ve gotten this far in this series, you know what to expect, and yet it still seems fresh, and there’s more to come.  4⭐⭐⭐⭐
