Lindsay Powell                         Historical Detective

GERMANICUS brings the reader face to bloody face with serious history and tells the story of a Roman emperor that might have been - principled, courageous and, above all else, sane! Excellent fare, and highly recommended.
Anthony Riches, Empire series.
Biographies of Germanicus Caesar – arguably one of Rome’s finest generals – are few and far between, sadly. When one is published, therefore, it gives cause for celebration – particularly when it’s as good as the volume penned by Lindsay Powell. Meticulously researched, absorbing and well written, this is no dusty, academic tome, but a ‘must have’ text for any reader with an interest in Rome. Powell knows his subject matter inside out, and is to be highly commended on a most welcome addition to the biographies of Rome’s most famous sons.
Ben Kane, The Forgotten Legion Chronicles and Spartacus series.
