Complete and unabridged. Rome, 65 AD. The city has just survived a massive fire which many think was instigated by the crazy emperor Nero himself, but as a new imperial city rises from the ashes, the people are faced with a new threat. Someone - or something - is brutally killing prominent citizens. Investigating the murders on behalf of the elite Eighth Cohort of Police, Quintus Julius Marcellus finds himself in a mesh of palace intrigue - battling against jealous rivals, protecting his Christian friends, and - as if that weren't enough - falling in love, against his better judgement, and with someone who could be close to the centre of the mystery he's trying to solve.
