“Eloquently written, Loreticus works on every level” ~ Grady Harp, author of War Songs and Amazon Hall of Fame reviewer.
It’s time to play as dirty as the other team.
Loreticus, the brilliant young spymaster of the empire, is chased out of the capital by a feud amongst his masters. He returns to his ancestral home in the mountains, desperate to get some rest from the bickering and politics.But as soon as he arrives back to the village, he finds that the enemy has made his family’s old country house home. Within twenty four hours, the interloper is dead – murdered – and Loreticus and his agent Selban are prime suspects. Can they find the missing assassin and the vanishing suspect before the generals demand that they swing for murder?
In Loreticus, JB Lucas has created a remarkable world of historical fiction that has parallels in both ancient Rome and modern diplomacy. Compelling historical fiction for fans of Steven Saylor and Lindsay Davies, Loreticus is soon to become your new favourite spy.Note: this series is set 20 years before the Lost Emperor saga.

JB has lived and studied in eight different countries so far, scattered across Europe, East Africa and Latin America. Passionate about high level politics, he studied the inner workings of the European Union as an undergrad 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.
