Summary (From the publisher):

History tells us that in 69 AD, on hearing that General Galba’s forces were closing in, the emperor Nero fled his palace in Rome. After stabbing himself in the throat with a pen, he was trampled to death by horses in a muddy ditch. His last words were: “What an artist dies with me.” He was thirty–two. History, however, does not always tell the truth, and there is another possibility… Nero did not die in that ditch, but somebody who looked very much like him did. This means that Nero has the opportunity to start a new life in pursuit of his first love: music. But there’s a problem: he is being pursued by two people who have reason to suspect he is still alive — and a least one of them wants him dead.
