The Emperor's Silver

The Emperor's Silver

Still recovering from his previous assignment in Arabia, imperial agent Cassius Corbulo has been spending most of his time and money on women and wine. Unfortunately for him, word of his achievements has reached the emperor Aurelian’s deputy and he is sent north, tasked with smashing a counterfeiting gang.

Cassius tracks the criminals to the city of Berytus, where his investigations are hampered by civil unrest and uncooperative officials, not to mention the personal problems of his servant Simo and bodyguard Indavara. Despite this – and intense pressure from his superiors – the young officer eventually closes in on the gang.

But his enemies will do anything to protect their profits, and Cassius and Indavara soon find themselves fighting not only for the emperor, but for their very survival.

Reviews

A thrilling and fascinating coming-of-age adventure
Book Gazette
Once the action kicks off you won't be able to put it down.
Anthony Riches, author of the <i>Empire</i> series
Praise for AGENT OF ROME: THE IMPERIAL BANNER: 'The Imperial Banner is Roman adventure at its best... brutal action leavened by a cynical brand of military humour, history, mystery, romance and an almost tangible sense of cohesion and camaraderie amongst Cassius and his cohorts. It's a formula that works well in so Brown's capable hands... Cassius's next assignment can't come too soon!'
<i>Lancashire Evening Post</i>
If you love Scarrow, adore Iggulden and of course admire Scott, then make sure you add Brown to your list. Great stuff.
Falcata Times
Praise for AGENT OF ROME: THE SIEGE: 'A masterful debut from a new author completely at home in this era'
Manda Scott
Nick Brown has the craft of storytelling at his fingertips ... The Siege is a fast-paced and satisfying read
Russell Whitfield, author of <i>Gladiatrix</i>
Brown promises to be one of the most exciting sword-wielding writers in an ever-popular arena.
<i>The Oxford Times</i>
Brown has given this Roman military/adventure story a great twist in having Cassius hail from the secret service ranks ...The Siege is also a character study and offers a rare glimpse into 3rd century Rome and her occupation of Syria.
Historical Novels Review
