About the book

Marcus Aquila and his patron Rutlius Scaurus have fought a superior enemy force to a standstill in Thracia, gaining the favour of the gods but paying a grievous cost in their family's blood. Battle-weary and mourning their losses, they are tasked with rooting out a spy ring operating in the lands into which their imperial master Severus's armies are advancing. Hunting down informers operating under the skilled and ruthless command of their sworn enemy Sartorius, spymaster to the usurper Niger, will not be easy. But the potential to turn his intelligence network, and thereby deceive and distract the enemy, might land a war-winning blow on the army of the east. The quest to find and subvert their foes' informers will place the two friends at great risk, with torture and death the price of any mistake. While success will put them in the front rank of a bitter battle against battle hardened legions, hungry for revenge, in a bloody struggle to determine the fate of Asia's loyalty. And Scaurus is a man with a powerful threat still hanging over him, a curse imploring the gods to fell him at the very moment of his greatest victory.

Anthony Riches

Following a childhood which featured a deep interest in the military rooted in his father and grandfather’s service in the two world wars, Anthony Riches took a degree in Military Studies at Manchester University. Working for a succession of blue-chip companies over the next twenty-five years, he gravitated into business systems and change project management, and has worked as a freelance project manager in the UK and Europe, the USA, the Middle and Far East over the last two decade.


Over the same period, Riches gradually refined his ability to write fiction which led to the publication of his hugely popular Empire series, beginning with Wounds of Honour, the most recent being The Scorpions Strike. In addition, Anthony has also written the Centurions trilogy: The Betrayal, Onslaught and Retribution.
