Watchmen of Rome Publisher's Summary

Rome, AD 27 - Gaius Valerius Carbo has returned to the heart of the empire after 25 years of serving in the legions. He just wants to retire in peace. But his friends are gone, his family is dead, and his home now belongs to someone else. When local thugs attack the tavern where he is resting, he finds himself caught up in the fight and inadvertently becomes the new owner of the building - and the enemies that come with it.

His world is turned upside down when he is confronted with a face from his past. He had sworn to protect and look after his childhood friend, Rufa, after her father died alongside him in battle. But now she has been sold into slavery and is on the run from her mistress, Elissa. Elissa is a powerful priestess who is organizing a cult to try and destroy Rome from within. Can Carbo protect Rufa - and Rome - from Elissa's evil plan? Or, will her following be too strong for the watchmen of Rome?
