Simon Scarrow is a British author of historical fiction, responsible for the bestselling Eagles of Empire series. After a spell teaching at a sixth form college, Scarrow turned his hand to fiction in 2000 with the first of the Eagles of Empire series, Under the Eagle. Scarrow has also written a number of novels concerning the interconnected lives of the Duke of Wellington and Napoleon Bonaparte, termed the Wellington and Napoleon Quartet, as well as a successful Young Adult sequence called Gladiator.
The second instalment of Scarrow's atmospheric series set in Nazi Germany finds Horst Schenke investigating two seemingly unconnected cases that hint at a secret so terrible that the criminal inspector fears it might cost him his life.
Two of Rome's finest commanders - Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro - are charged with a mission as deadly as any they have faced in their long careers. Can they win the day, or could this be the last battle?
