Bandits of Rome by Alex Gough @romanfiction
“A gripping thriller.” – Jerome Wilson
“Absorbing read from beginning to end.” – Chris Stevens
Carbo and his loved ones leave Rome for the sleepy Italian countryside, desperate to recover from their recent traumas. But a chance encounter with locally notorious masked bandits leads to a devastating outcome. Carbo has to fight his own demons and an evil conspiracy to save himself and his friends, and avenge his loss.
Bandits of Rome, the sequel to the number one bestselling novel Watchmen of Rome, follows Carbo as he plunges from happiness to despair, from the Italian countryside to the lead mines of Sicily.
Will Carbo ever find the peace he craves?
Biography of Alex Gough
I’m a veterinary surgeon from the southwest of England, working in referral practice. I have had a decades long interest in Ancient Roman history, and the Carbo Series (Watchmen of Rome, Bandits of Rome and the short story collection Carbo and the Thief) is the culmination of a lot of research into the underclasses of Ancient Rome.
I am also the author of two veterinary textbooks, Breed Predispositions to Disease in Dogs and Cats and Differential Diagnosis in Small Animal Medicine, both of which have been translated into multiple languages and are in their second editions.
“A great read, well researched and very well written. It’s darker than the first novel in the series, something I enjoyed very much. I’m looking forward to the next installment!” – Mrs. C
