A popular author of historical fiction, Simon Scarrow was born on 3 October in Lagos, Nigeria and is now based in Norfolk. He worked as a teacher before going into writing and is best known for his Eagle series of military fiction novels set during the Roman era.
He is also the author of Revolution - a series about Wellington and Napoleon. His writing is influenced by the likes of I, Claudius and the epic Roman films he watched while growing up in the 1970s. He is also the author of the Gladiator series and his great love of history shines through in his writing.
The bestselling author of CENTURION and THE GLADIATOR returns with another action-packed Roman adventure. When the actions of a rebel gladiator in Egypt threaten the stability of the Roman Empire, Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro know he must be stopped. The locals are holding the Romans responsible for the attacks Ajax and his crew have been making along the coast and now Egypt is dangerously volatile. Tasked with tracking and defeating the renegade, Cato and Macro are soon hot on Ajax's trail, determined to destroy the enemy. But will the strength of a psychotically fatalist gladiator and his new-found allies, hell-bent on destruction, defeat the Roman warriors?
