A Novella by

Byzantium, 248 AD
Tarchon has nothing. His mother is dead, his father is absent, and he spends his days doing odd jobs – and the odd crime – on the tough streets of Byzantium. But when an attempted robbery lands him in prison, he is approached by an organisation looking for resourceful, ambitious, young operatives. The rise of the Gothic King Cniva threatens the eastern Roman Empire and the Imperial Security Service is thinly stretched. Drawn by the promise of money, status and adventure, Tarchon sets out to prove himself and is tasked with increasingly difficult challenges. He is then sent north on his most crucial mission yet; only a successful outcome will earn him the coveted title,
Agent of Rome.
