AD 58: Rome is in turmoil once more.
Emperor Nero has set his heart on a new wife but to clear a path for her, he must first assassinate his Empress, Claudia Octavia. Vespasian needs to tread carefully here - Nero's new lover, Poppaea Sabina, is no friend of his and her ascent to power spells danger.
Meanwhile, Nero's extravagance has reached new heights, triggering a growing financial crisis in Britannia. Vespasian is sent to Londinium to rescue the situation, only to become embroiled in a deadly rebellion, one that threatens to destroy Britannia and de-stabilise the empire . . .

"A fantastic addition to a consistently excellent series on Vespasian. So much going on here - in Rome and in Britannia - and all of it is gripping. Highlights, and there are many, include a fabulously terrifying portrait of Nero."
"This book, Furies of Rome, is a masterpiece. A master work. The work of a writing master at the peak of his game. A masterpiece after six previous volumes? Outrageous! If you haven't read the previous books in the series, are you in for a treat." - Goodreads Reviews.
"Robert Fabbri has a winner on his hands." - The BookPlank.
