Rome's False God of Rome
The first book in the Vespasian series was published in May 2012. It was followed by The False God of Rome on 1st January 2013. Vespasian has just started on book four, which has the working title of Rome's Fallen Eagle. He intends to write seven books, but will also write short stories starring Magnus, Vespasian's best friend. Vespasian's False God of Rome is available in Kindle format.
In the end, Vespasian finds himself in an even greater dilemma than before. His quest to retrieve Alexander's ring is not only complicated but also deadly. The ring was buried in Egypt and he must bring it back to Rome. The journey, however, will be fraught with violence, mayhem, theft, and betrayal. But how will he accomplish his mission?
Vespasian is a military officer on the edge of the Roman Empire, suppressing local troubles and defending the Roman way of life. However, when Tiberius becomes Emperor, Vespasian returns to his home city. There, he sees his beloved Rome turn into a nightmare. Vespasian is forced to watch as the shining star of Rome, Caligula, degrades into a blood-crazed madman who plots to destroy the city and bury its heir.
Vespasian's false god of Rome was a brigand who had never served summary justice. As a tribune, he was the lowest officer rank among the military. Vespasian and Sabinus had never been friendly in Pannonia, and they kept their dealings frosty in public. Vespasian soon learned to avoid Sabinus, and became extremely suspicious of him.
Day of the Caesars
In the first two books, Julii Caesares traced his lineage to the goddess Venus. The family was not conservative, snobbish, or rich. In the third book, the lineage is revealed to Cato and his wife, Domitia. Despite their differences, the two are essentially the same, and they share the same love of Rome. Nevertheless, Julii Caesares is not the same man as the other members of the family.
Caligula's plan to bridge Neapolis's bay in Alexander's breastplate
The construction of the bridge began in 39 AD, and the Roman emperor hoped to ride his carriage across it in style. However, many believe Caligula was simply mad. The bridge, which spans three miles, was constructed using a series of pontoons that were salvaged from the area. Sand was poured over the pontoons to stabilize them.
Vespasian, a military officer on the outskirts of the Roman Empire, suppressed local troubles and defended the Roman way. When Tiberius became Emperor, he returned to Rome, hoping that the situation would improve in the capital. Vespasian watched Caligula's deterioration from the brilliant leader of Rome to a blood-crazed madman. His endless games, obsession with his sister Drusilla, and plans to bridge Neapolis's bay scare the senate. The Roman army fought back, but they were unable to reach the emperor.
The surviving sources describe Caligula as mad, except for Pliny the Elder, who describes him as "sane" and "crazed". Many historians attribute his behavior to an illness that caused him to become insane. One theory suggests that Caligula suffered from hyperthyroidism, which could explain his uncontrolled behavior and "stare".
The emperor's father had been a general and had many enemies. His uncle Germanicus was also a common Roman general, but Tiberius's son, Gaius, acquired the nickname "Caligula" from soldiers. Tiberius's son became the emperor of Rome and had many followers, but he was largely overshadowed by his alleged madness.
