Gods of Rome Hardcover

The Power
and the Paranoia


From New York Times bestselling author Thomas Greanias comes an epic of ancient Rome that illuminates the gathering darkness of our times.

The assassination of Caesar’s chief astrologer explodes into revelations of a secret Christian order known as “Rule of God.” The order has penetrated the highest echelons of the empire. Its mission: to fulfill a decades-old prophecy predicting the exact day and hour that Caesar will die. Desperate to prove the oracles wrong, an increasingly erratic Caesar kills all suspected enemies, even those who dare whisper about his hairpiece. No one from slave to senator can escape his reign of terror.

Enter the celebrated playwright Athanasius.  Wrongly accused by jealous rivals of being Chiron, the elusive mastermind behind Rule of God, Athanasius is condemned to certain death in the reality show of the arena.  It is only with the help of mysterious benefactors that he miraculously escapes, alone with a secret that could destroy the empire.  Hunted by assassins across the Mediterranean, his last hope of refuge is inside the ranks of the very terrorist order he was accused of masterminding.  But the only way up—or out—is to kill or be killed.

A meticulously researched and masterfully crafted conspiracy thriller inspired by real people and events, The Chiron Confession is the unforgettable story of one man against the world.
