As part of Chichester Roman Week 2019, join bestselling author and Oxford academic Harry Sidebottom, as he takes his audience on a journey through ancient Rome and Asia and discusses his new fast-paced thriller – The Lost Ten – a desperate rescue attempt deep behind enemy lines that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
When Valens, a junior officer in the Roman Army, joins a crack squad of soldiers on a dangerous mission, little does he know what’s in store for him. Tasked with rescuing the young Prince Sasan, who has been imprisoned in the impenetrable Castle of Silence, the troops set out across Mesopotamia and into the mountains south of the Caspian Sea.
Deep in hostile territory, inexperienced Valens finds himself in charge. And as one by one his soldiers die or disappear, he begins to suspect that there is a traitor in their midst, and that the rescue is fast becoming a suicide mission.
