My novel Watchmen of Rome is finally out! Click above to purchase a copy through Amazon.
Watchmen is the first in a series of books about the war veteran Carbo, set in the underclass of Ancient Rome.
Carbo returns to Rome after his discharge from the legions, wanting to live a quiet life, and finds himself fighting against the authorities, the local thugs and an evil cult, to save himself, his love, and Rome itself.
Carbo is a larger than life hero, honourable, physically strong, but damaged by wounds to his body and his soul from the battles in which he has fought. WATCHMEN OF ROME is a fast-paced thriller, the first in what I hope will be a long series of novels about Carbo. I have aimed to bring the pace and action of Lee Child and Matt Hilton to an Ancient Roman setting, where the focus is not on armies and battles, nor Emperors and senators, but the struggle of the lowest of the low in a violent and unforgiving society.
Watchmen of Rome has been through an in depth editing process with the literary consultancy Cornerstones. The editor commented that Watchmen of Rome was “a dynamic action thriller with considerable commercial potential.”
I have been lucky enough to have had my manuscript read by the bestselling author of the Marius’ Mules series, S.J.A. Turney, who said:
“It’s a superb piece of work. Excellent characterisation, great action, lovely attention to detail, storming plot and a really nice ending.”
