A New York Times Bestselling AuthorMy name is Lucius Aurelius Valens, and I am a soldier in the service of Rome. Once a tribune of the Sixth Legion, he has angered those who can take his position -- and his life. To avoid further trouble, he accepts the command of the Third Gallic Cavalry Regiment stationed in far-off Galilee. There Lucius expects a life of long, tedious patrols through the outlying province. No sooner has he arrived, than he stumbles on a massacre of soldiers and the man they were protecting -- a Roman senator and ally of the emperor. But why would such an important person be traveling through that backwater? And who would want him dead?
