Rome 68 AD. Slaughtering hundreds of civilians at the gates of Rome is hardly the best introduction for new Emperor Galba to his city. However the aged ruler is determined to get on with clearing up the mess Nero left. Assisting him are his three men: Vinius, Laco and Icelus. Also in his entourage one Marcus Salvius Otho. Jovial, charming and fatally reckless Otho is armed with a killer idea: Wouldn't it be marvellous if the childless Galba adopted him as his heir? Appointing old pal Epaphroditus as his campaign manager, Otho sets about winning hearts and minds in his own unique cheery way. For Epaphroditus it is a harmless way of enlivening his post Nero retirement; either Galba makes Otho his heir, or he doesn’t. What could possibly go wrong? For once the former Palace manipulator has fatally miscalculated. These are paranoid times and Otho’s 'harmless' plan is about to bring Rome to its knees.

Reviews and Endorsements

‘Roman fiction as I really like it – told from the gross underbelly of Imperial Court politics. Highly recommended’
- Richard Blake, author of Conspiracies of Rome and Game of Empires

‘A lively and entertaining read. Galba’s court leaps off the page at you – sex, violence, self-interest, intrigue – seen through the eyes of the hierarchy of slaves and free men whose labours made it work’
- Rosemary Rowe, author of the Libertus Mysteries series

About the Author(s)

L. J. Trafford worked as a tour guide, after gaining a BA Hons in ancient history. This experience was a perfect introduction to writing, involving as it did the need for entertainment and a hefty amount of invention (it’s how she got tips!). She now works in London doing something whizzy with databases.
