From the Inside Flap
AD 64: Sebastos Pantera is newly returned from five years' undercover work in Britannia. Sick of spying, he plans to retire into peaceful anonymity far from the schemes of his Emperor. But no sooner has he set foot in Gaul than he is summoned to Nero’s presence, and ordered to undertake one final mission.
Nero, Emperor of Rome, is passionate, erratic – and utterly ruthless. He has found an ancient prophecy predicting that Rome will burn. Surrounded by courtiers who fear and hate him in equal measure, he trusts no one to hunt down the rebels plotting Rome's destruction – except Pantera. But are they both too late?
Math is a boy charioteer who dreams of driving his team of horses in Rome. Loved by both men, and lusted after by one, he soon becomes an unwilling pawn in a terrifying and deadly game where no one is quite what they seem, and death stalks the charioteers – on the track and off it.

About the Author
M.C. Scott began writing while still a horse vet in Newmarket with the result that horses feature prominently in her novels. In The Emperor's Spy, they have evolved from the home-bred battle mounts of the tribal warriors in her bestselling Boudica quartet of novels to the four-in-hand chariot racers favoured by the Emperor Nero. The research took her back to the Ist Century AD, a time when life was simpler, more majestic and far more thrilling than now.
She lives with her partner in Shropshire and is working on the next book in her 'Rome' series featuring the assassin and spy, Sebastos Pantera.
