“The pratfall of the Roman empire …”
Toss one skittish outsider together with the swaggering ruler of the known world. Whip in a generous serving of deadly chases, spy rings and desperate disguises. And enjoy the most deranged Caesar salad ever served up.
As a social outcast, Paul has a single ambition for life. To sneak through it unnoticed. Not on Paul’s wish list: Stumbling into a treacherous conspiracy with only one way out. By teaming up with the most legendary and blustering conqueror who’s ever lived.
To stay alive, two unexpected companions will need to unite their entirely opposing urges. While facing unthinkable peril. To say nothing of the trash chute, bridal costume and first-ever texting scandal.
The mayhem promises astonishing revelations for both of them. About courage, friendship and surprise identities. They first just need to survive each other. Plus an imperial army.
It’s all told in this exhilarating and almost certainly true history of Rome, unearthed after 2,000 years.
“Try picturing P.G. Wodehouse, Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman – all tangled up in a toga … The epic story that history felt too embarrassed to tell. Till now. It’s the Hitchhiker’s Guide to Ancient Rome!”

An award-winning daily newspaper reporter and humor columnist, John Hoffman surprisingly decided that a law degree and attempt at politics would make sense. He was mostly wrong. Still, his work as a speechwriter and press secretary helped shape his writing – and an arguably somewhat off-center understanding of human nature.
John’s earned a degree in Journalism from the University of Illinois/Champaign. His “While You Were Away” column (The Daily Journal/Suburban Chicago) explored the quirks of community, contemporary life and, occasionally, the perfect joy of a good game of bocce ball. After nearly 25 years in the political field, he has returned to writing and communications full-time.
