Debauchery. Depravity. Decadence.

Just everyday life at the imperial palace.

Whilst Emperor Nero plays with his new water organ and a cross-dressing eunuch, his wily secretary Epaphroditus manages affairs of state. But dissent and rebellion are growing across the empire, and Nero is soon to discover playtime is over.

Praetorian prefect Nymphidius Sabinus, disgusted by the moral degeneracy, secretly plots the overthrow of Nero’s court. Motivated by the traditional Roman values of valour and nobility, yet blinded by his own righteousness, Sabinus is ignorant of what he has unleashed – The Year of the Four Emperors.

Palatine is the first in an enthralling four-book series about the tumultuous ‘Year of the Four Emperors’ which will appeal to fans of Lindsey Davis and George R. R. Martin.

‘A thoroughly enjoyable and riveting read, full of intrigue and depravity with a fast-paced plot. Great fun!’
- Robert Fabbri, bestselling author of the Vespasian series

‘What a great read: it’s quick-witted, well observed, and packed with characters that stay in the mind long after the last page has been turned’
- Ruth Downie, bestselling author of the Medicus mystery series

Palatine is Downton Abbey with teeth, a racy, entertaining, largely slave’s-eye view of Nero’s final months in power combining historical fact, Suetonian mud-slinging, skulduggery both above and below stairs, a touch of romanticism, and more than a smidgeon of period brutality’
David Wishart, bestselling author of the Marcus Corvinus mystery 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.
