Back Cover Blurb
"We're dealing with a magician for an empire," said Verus. "I can't say I like that."
"A very wealthy magician. Those coins are real."
Verus looked at the stacks of gold on the table. They had been apportioned to each man, but not equally. The commander of Raphanae attained to a somewhat larger share. As was proper.
"So he buys a Roman garrison for a few gold pieces."
"More than a few."
"Still, he's gotten it cheap."
"If he has it. Does he?"
Verus smiled. "How much are you culling from this venture, Marcellus?"
"They must be high. This is a fine villa. The food was fine. The women magnificent."
"You don't bother to reckon accounts."
"Not unless we're speaking of figures."
"What do you imagine we're doing?"
One thing about Verus: he was direct. He was also corrupt, but circumstances made that welcome. Macrinus could at any moment decide we were worth his violent attention.
"Three million sesterces."
"Five," he said.
"If you deliver within the month."
Verus looked as if he had expected more haggling. He held his hand up as if to count his fingers. "This is the month of the goddess Maia, good wife of Mars," he said. "I must say war seems appropriate."
