Yeh! So excited! The second in my ‘Senator’ series is to be launched on 24th March.
The story takes place in 40AD.
‘Despite the threat of bloodshed, Senator Vivius Marcianus travels to Jerusalem to investigate the delay in erecting the Emperor’s statue in the Jewish temple. Failure is not an option. But when Vivius is wounded and imprisoned, it is left to Dorio, his brother-in-law, to rescue his heavily pregnant sister and her children and set about proving Vivius’s innocence.’
I loved the idea of Dorio, the underdog messing up but coming good despite all odds. That, and the political intrigues of the time, are two of the reasons I wrote The Senator’s Darkest Days’, and from the few who’ve had a sneak preview of it the response is even more positive than for the first book.
“Joan Histon has created another engaging page-turner as she revisits the ruthless and often brutal political world of ancient Rome in her sequel the Senator’s Assignment’. Once more her attention to detail and ability to craft a tale of conspiracy and intrigue against this seditious period in world history are perfectly aligned in this gripping thriller.”
“The Senator’s Darkest Days” is a captivating and compelling thriller. Joan Histon weaves her story with well imagined descriptions of the people and places of the time immersing us in the political intrigues of Caligula’s Roman Empire“
So I shall be doing my bit and bombarding social media news of the launch at the end of March. So please wish me ‘God speed’ because you know how I struggle with technology.
