9781444714920: Agent of Rome: The Far Shore

When the deputy commander of Rome's Imperial Security Service is assassinated on the island of Rhodes, Cassius Corbulo swiftly finds himself embroiled in the investigation. Assisted once more by ex-gladiator bodyguard Indavara and servant Simo, his search for the truth is complicated by the involvement of the dead man's headstrong daughter, Annia.

Braving hostile seas, Cassius and his allies follow the assassin's trail south aboard a ship captained by a roguish Carthaginian smuggler and manned by his disparate, dangerous crew. Their journey leads them to the farthest reaches of the empire; to a ruined city where the rules of Roman civilization have long been abandoned, and a deadly battle of wits with a brutal, relentless foe.

Review:

'A thrilling and fascinating coming-of-age adventure'―Book Gazette

Praise for AGENT OF ROME: THE SIEGE:

'A masterful debut from a new author completely at home in this era'―Manda Scott

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!'―Lancashire Evening Post

Praise for AGENT OF ROME: THE FAR SHORE:

Brown has become a master of his trade, serving up thrilling Roman history and mystery courtesy of a band of now hard-bitten combatants and comrades whose adventures in imperial wastelands and far-flung hotspots are becoming the stuff of legend.―Lancashire Evening Post

A race against the hourglass ... an exciting, engaging mix between Indiana Jones, Hercule Poirot and James Bond.

A fast-paced, action-packed novel tinged with humour which brings alive the harsh reality of the period, the people and the culture.―Historical Novels Review

'Perfect pace, vivid combat sequences and superb characterisation'―Lancashire Evening Post

'Once the action kicks off you won't be able to put it down.'―Anthony Riches, author of the Empire series

'Nick Brown has the craft of storytelling at his fingertips ... The Siege is a fast-paced and satisfying read'―Russell Whitfield, author of Gladiatrix

'If you love Scarrow, adore Iggulden and of course admire Scott, then make sure you add Brown to your list. Great stuff.'―Falcata Times

'Brown promises to be one of the most exciting sword-wielding writers in an ever-popular arena.'―The Oxford Times

'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
