Vespasian is totally out of his depth, making dangerous enemies and even more dangerous friends - like the young Caligula and soon finds himself ensnared in a conspiracy against Tiberius. With the situation in Rome deteriorating, Vespasian flees the city to take up a position as tribune in an unfashionable legion on the Balkan frontier. Even here, rebellion is in the air and unblooded and inexperienced, Vespasian must lead his men in savage battle with hostile mountain tribes. Vespasian will soon realize that he can't escape Roman politics any more than he can escape his destiny.

The main character, Lucius, is a soldier of great importance to Rome and all the lands that are under Roman rule. Lucius travels from Rome to the Holy Land in carrying out his assignment from the powers that be, but he is a cowboy.
Somehow, he Recommend I like this author and this book. Somehow, he turns his military orders into orders that he believes are more important to his cause. When the book opened with the discovery of several dead bodies, I was hooked to the read. I think you will be very intrigued with the storyline and the way the author puts his words together. Thank you, Mr.
Larkin, for a good read. Sep 25, Lindsey rated it liked it Shelves: historical-fiction , ancient-rome. This started out well for me-a Roman tribune dedicated to maintaining honor in a system that is becoming increasingly corrupt. The tribune Lucius Valens uncovers an extortion scheme run by his superiors out in Syria and, as a result, stumbles onto a murder of a high-ranking Roman senator. I enjoyed the military and investigative side of this story highlighting the corruption of the Roman Empire. I just lost interest when the story veered off into an introduction to Yeshua and his mother Miryam This started out well for me-a Roman tribune dedicated to maintaining honor in a system that is becoming increasingly corrupt.
I just lost interest when the story veered off into an introduction to Yeshua and his mother Miryam Jesus and Mary as Valens tried to protect a Jewish town from a vengeful destruction by Roman soldiers and Valens' miraculous healing. It was interesting to see how Yeshua and Miryam fit into the historical timeline but the detour into religious fiction just isn't my thing. Sep 13, Jan rated it it was ok. I picked this book out for free from Amazon Prime Library mostly as research for a long short story I set in the same historical period.
One of the two main characters in my story is a Roman commander in Anatolia, and the titular character of The Tribune is a Roman commander in Syria who gets transferred to Judea. I thought I might glean some details of or at least a feeling for everyday life as a Roman soldier of the period in the provinces.

I enjoyed the depiction of Roman military life as well as the unexpected murder mystery aspect of the book, but I could have done without all the New Testament characters. Aug 05, Zoe rated it liked it Shelves: bought-on-kindle. Good when it's not clumsily and way-too-obviously trying to bring the Bible into the story. What could he possibly be getting at??
The soldiering and story of the narrator are interesting, it's just annoying as the author hits you over the head with one Bible reference after another and they get more badly done as the story goes on. Expect modernization o Good when it's not clumsily and way-too-obviously trying to bring the Bible into the story.

One would expect nothing less than a highly satisfying read from an author of Larkin's caliber and he does not disappoint. The pace is steady and even the minor characters have depth. What sets this book apart from the usual Roman era soldier fare is the premise.

We have all heard the story of how Pontius Pilate washed his hands of any decision about the crucifixion of Jesus, but what was the Roman response to the rising popularity of this unlikely rebel? Larkin takes u A highly satisfying read.
Larkin takes us to the very beginning of that story as told by one who might have been there, the Tribune. The outcome will delight you. This book is just as good and probably better since it includes the most important person who lived when Rome ruled the world. From the time 12 year old Paul of Tarsus makes his appearance, I was hooked.
Then along comes a shepherd with a lost lamb and finally a young carpenter named Yeshua. Plot twists lead to a superb ending. Where is Book 2? I'm jumping right into it next. Jun 10, Robert Jones rated it really liked it. I read this a couple of months ago and thought it was a really good book.
Mr Larkin obviously knows his stuff and has a great eye for detail.
