Summary

It was a summer of glorious triumph for the mighty Roman Republic. Her invincible legions had brought all foreign enemies to their knees. But in Rome there was no peace. The streets were flooded with the blood of murdered citizens, and there were rumors of more atrocities to come. Decius Caecilius Metellus the Younger was convinced a conspiracy existed to overthrow the government, a sinister cabal that could only be destroyed from within. But admission into the traitorous society of evil carried a grim price: the life of Decius' closest friend - and maybe his own.

The author's masterful writing and impeccable faithfulness to historical fact join together to create a grippingly suspenseful tale of murder and conspiracy in ancient Rome.

no idea what the story was the reader was awful

having someone read a book with a nineteen twenties ham accent that purports to be posh is so distracting that I just couldn't get into the story the voice was like a cheese grater so disappointing

What's with the new 'book cover'?

The book is set in 1st Century BC Rome.. What's with the Building? I preferred the old Book Cover, it was more appropriate to the book ie fun.

Moreover, the precious narrator was better at this book.
