Reviews

The best sort of red-blooded historical fiction - solidly based on a profound understanding of what it meant to be alive in a particular time and place. -- Andrew Taylor
An exceptionally gifted story-teller drawing on prodigious learning. -- Tim Severin
Absorbing, rich in detail and brilliant. * The Times *
Swashbuckling as well as bloody, yet curiously plausible ... a real gift for summoning up a sense of place. * Times Literary Supplement *
Ancient Rome has long been a favourite destination for writers of historical military -fiction. Much the best of them is Harry Sidebottom. * Sunday Times *
An extraordinarily vivid take on the ancient world. Think of The Killing crossed with Andy McNab crossed with Mary Beard, and you're there. -- David Sexton * Evening Standard *
An amazing story of bloodlust, ruthless ambition and revenge. -- Kate Saunders * The Times *
A gripping, edge-of-the-seat historical action thriller which melds Jack Reacher with Jack Bauer...if you want to be entertained as well as reliably informed, enjoy all-action thrillers, fancy a fascinating whistle-stop tour of the ancient City of Rome, and revel in witnessing a bygone world brought to vivid, visceral life, then The Last Hour should tick every box * Lancashire Evening Post *
