The first volume of a thrilling espionage adventure series unlike all others—with the unique setting of Late Roman North Africa in 347 A.D. among religious terrorists. The Circumcellions are suicidal extremists determined to uproot the centuries-old Roman army occupation of the Numidian desert and the official Christian church it now defends. Bodyguard-slave Marcus has only one mission—to spy his way to freedom—but has he bargained on betrayal by the man he respects more than any other?
Meticulously researched, fast-paced, and well-plotted, 'A Veiled Assassin' introduces the Embers of Empire series that carries Marcus from Donatist fanatics to doomed Gallo-Roman army reformers to corrupt Antioch eunuch courtiers—all of them embers of a empire blindly smoldering towards extinction. 'Roman fiction' fans tiring of the Republic or Imperial periods are welcoming this intriguing series with enthusiasm.
'A Veiled Assassin' and its sequels, 'Usurpers,' and 'The Back Gate to Hell' rank Hunter alongside Steven Saylor, Robert Harris and Harry Sidebottom.
