Read full description of the books No roads lead to Rome:There's no time like the past to laugh at the present.
A.D. 123. On the edge of the Roman Empire, a dead governor leaves behind the opportunity of a lifetime.
Mysteriously promoted, a senator's son finds himself in an ancient world of trouble. Within days of taking office, Hispania's taxpayers are in open revolt, all legionaries depart to build Hadrian's Wall, and the once-sleepy province is rocked by slave revolts, bread riots, and fad religions.
"No Roads Lead to Rome" chronicles the clumsy schemes of an inept new governor and his shadowy adviser, a superstitious centurion's struggle to save his faith in the faded ideals of the Republic, and a young rebel's reluctant vow to change the course of history. All are pitted against the Gods, the Emperor, and the decline and fall of damn near everything.
t's A.D. 123--a time not unlike the present--and No Roads Lead to Rome.
