This is a thrilling race-against-time historical adventure in the bestselling tradition of Conn Iggulden's Emperor series from the author of the bestselling Boudica series. The Emperor's Spy begins a compelling new series of novels (second one is due this summer in hardback) featuring assassin and spy Sebastos Pantera.  Rich characterisation and spine tingling adventure combine in a vividly realised novel set amid the bloodshed and the chaos, the heroism and murderous betrayal of ancient Rome.

Rome : The Emperor's Spy Synopsis

Rome is burning. Only one man can save it. The Emperor: Nero, Emperor of Rome and all her provinces, feared by his subjects for his temper and cruelty, is in possession of an ancient document predicting that Rome will burn. The Spy: Sebastos Pantera, assassin and spy for the Roman Legions, is ordered to stop the impending cataclysm. He knows that if he does not, his life - and those of thousands of others - are in terrible danger. The Chariot Boy: Math, a young charioteer, is a pawn drawn into the deadly game between the Emperor and the Spy, where death stalks the drivers - on the track and off it.
