Watchmen of Rome (Carbo of Rome Book 1)

By Alex Gough

Historical fiction, Thriller | Paperback, eBook, Audiobook


Rome, AD 27. Gaius Valerius Carbo has returned to the heart of the Empire after 25 years serving in the legions. He just wants to retire in peace. But his friends are gone, his family are 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 organising a cult to try and destroy Rome from within. Can Carbo protect Rufa — and Rome — from Elissa’s sinister plan? Or will her following be too strong for the Watchmen of Rome?

I'm a veterinary surgeon from the southwest of England, working in referral practice. I have had a decades long interest in Ancient Roman history, and the Carbo Series (Watchmen of Rome, Bandits of Rome and the short story collection Carbo and the Thief) is the culmination of a lot of research into the underclasses of Ancient Rome. I am also the author of two veterinary textbooks, Breed Predispositions to Disease in Dogs and Cats and Differential Diagnosis in Small Animal Medicine, both of which have been translated into multiple languages and are in their second editions. I would love to interact with readers, please email me at romanfiction@hotmail.co.uk.
