Former vet Ben Kane first fought his way to our attention with the bestselling Spartacus series. His new book, Fields of Blood, continues the thrilling story begun in Hannibal, covering the legendary Carthaginian general’s revenge on Rome that triggered a bloody twenty-year war. The epic narratives, focusing in on the lives of slaves, gladiators and pirates, are always underlaid by the author’s trademark attention to historical detail. We always look forward to Ben’s visits to the bookshop – often in full Roman armour, he is one of the most entertaining and dynamic speakers we know, conquering new fans as well as attracting back long-time readers.
