A Course of Honour

JACKET NOTES:  The love story of the Emperor Vespasian, who rough peace to Rome after years of strife, and his mistress, the freed slave woman Antonia Caenis, the book recreates Ancient Rome’s most turbulent period--the reigns of Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius and Nero, and Vespasian’s rise to power.
As their forbidden romance blossoms, she is embroiled in political intrigue, while he embarks on a glorious career. Years pass, then Vespasian risks all in the climactic struggle for power--bringing hope for Rome, but a threat to the relationship that has endured so long.
‘The Course of Honour’ will delight not only the fans of Lindsey Davis’s bestselling Falco novels, but anyone with an interest in the era that inspired Robert Graves’s classic, ‘I, Claudius’.
