Summary (From the publisher):

Rome is bathed in blood as the Emperor Tiberius is tormented by drug-fuelled terrors of treason. The innocent are butchered while the guilty do evil in darkness. None are guiltier than the Emperor's devoted and deluded 'son,' Sejanus. In this city of poison three beautiful women are locked in a lethal rivalry. Agrippina—driven mad with grief, her obsession with revenge for her murdered husband imperiling the lives of her children. Apicata—robbed of her eyes and embittered in her heart, she schemes in the shadows to empower the husband who despises her. Livilla—sensual and sly, she is gripped by a lust for a lover as deadly as he is desirable. Three women. One goal. Who will be Empress of Rome? Moving stealthily among them is Iphicles, arch schemer and slave, whose haunted heart is lightened by the eunuch Lygdus, his willing apprentice in murder. With paralyzed Livia now a helpless captive to her slave, it is the repellent brat Little Boots' turn to profit from prophecy. But as Iphicles' deadly plan to enthrone Little Boots unfolds, Livia struggles secretly towards recovery with the help of the sorceress Martina. Rome is a nest of vipers, and Livia, the one true Empress of Rome, is hell bent on wreaking her vengeance.
