Publisher's Summary

From ITW Thriller Award-winning and USA Today best-selling author R. Cameron Cooke comes another exciting tale in the adventures of Lucius Domitius, soldier of Rome.... 57 BC, Gaul - Marching with Caesar's legions against the defiant Belgic tribes, legionary Lucius Domitius narrowly survives an attempt on his life. He is shocked to discover that someone in the higher ranks wants him dead. Unable to trust even his oldest comrades, Lucius must expose his assailant before the murderer tries again. But as Lucius begins to unravel the plot, he learns that he is just a pawn in a much grander scheme - a scheme to betray the proconsul, Gaius Julius Caesar, and the entire Roman army, to the savagery of the enemy. All of their fates converge on the banks of a lazy river in the Belgic lands, where the stalwart legions are attacked by an army of spear-wielding, axe-swinging warriors twice their number in the epic Battle of the Sabis.

    "Interesting Story!"

    How refreshing to read/listen to such an riveting & interesting story. I've been so bored with the Dan Brown wannabe books that when I came across this story, I was poised to purchase. It was not a let down; in fact, I look forward to listen to the next Lucius Domitius adventure. Thank you, R. Cameron Cooke. I would have read the book if audio was unavailable, but Tim Campbell's narration kept the story interesting as well. Great team!

    "Hades in Gaul"

    Although our recent wars produced more casualties than theses campaigns inn the first be, the percentage of the peoples decimated (which means one in ten) or extinguished leaves a heavy heart. To bear it is the way of life of this world. Where I sit, four hundred years ago in "king Philip''s War, 90 percent of every man woman and child died of disease, violence or starvation. Ancient Gaul and Belgium were not unlike the area and the manner in which the Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay colonies fought it out with the Abebenaki, Nipmuck , Narragansett and allied tribes.
    Yet we think the Romans cruel and think of our earliest founding fathers as somewhat weirdly dressed but enlightened people. Rome., at least, had been attacked and sacked buy Gallic peoples moving west. The Legion was a Gaul killing machine invented by Camilus, improved buy Markus and wielded expertly by Caesar.
    This book puts people we don't understand as well as we should.
