Product description

Product Description

One man's secret is another man's weapon and Loreticus, spymaster to an Emperor, considers himself well armed.

Secrets are Loreticus’ business; spies and sources his colleagues. But when the new emperor goes missing, he suddenly finds himself isolated and uncertain who to trust. His search for the young emperor reveals an underworld of coups, assassinations, ambition and infidelity that make him doubt how much he ever really knew about the power behind the throne. Had he been guilty of simply seeing the world he wanted to, like the ignorant population he had always scorned?

As he struggles to deliver the young emperor safely and reunite the country, he finds himself torn between his old-fashioned principles and a new political reality.

In Loreticus, JB Lucas has created a remarkable world of historical fiction that has parallels in both ancient Rome and modern diplomacy. A compelling political thriller for fans of Robert Harris, Loreticus is the first novel in a three-book spy thriller series.

About the Author

JB has lived and studied in eight different countries so far, and has managed to appear desperately foreign in each. Passionate about high level politics, he studied the inner workings of the European Union as a degree with a view to eventually working in the arena of international border disputes. Although his career has (obviously) taken a rather different route, he is now writing about the obsession which has captivated him his entire life - the tectonic movements of states. JB is now resident in the darkest depths of leafy West London, where he writes using the inspiration of the India-Pakistan split, the founding of Israel, the identity crisis of Brexit and the maelstrom within the EU.
