Been making my way through Scarrow's Eagle series - great historical fiction about the Roman legions. This is book 6 in the series. Macro & Cato are once again involved in Imperial Roman politics - they get assigned a task which puts them on a ship hunting down pirates who have stolen a very valuable scroll considered critical to the safety of Rome. Action packed, a quick easy read. SPL does not have book 7 in the series (The Eagle In the Sand). I bought a used copy and will give it to anyone making their way through the series (think you can send a message through the SPL website.) Macro & Cato get sent to Judea to deal with religious rebels. It's not quite Macro's ideal of the alleged pleasures of Syria. The desert is almost as bad as the dreary weather in Britannia!

In Rome instead of Britain, on the sea instead of land, working for a spymaster instead of Legate. Quite the chance for our heroes and despite an annoying sub-plot with Macros mother, a very good story.
