Britannia has been subdued - and an epic new chapter in Marcus Valerius Aquila's life begins. One Good Deed. David Baldacci. The 1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci introduces an unforgettable new character: Archer, a straight-talking former World War II soldier fresh out of prison for a crime he didn't commit.
It's When war veteran Aloysius Archer is released from Carderock Prison, he is sent to Poca City on parole with a short list of do's and a much longer list of don'ts: do report regularly to his parole officer, don't go to bars, certainly don't drink alcohol, do get a job--and don't ever associate with loose women. The small town quickly proves more complicated and dangerous than Archer's years serving in the war or his time in jail. Within a single night, his search for gainful employment--and a stiff drink--leads him to a local bar, where he is hired for what seems like a simple job: to collect a debt owed to a powerful local businessman, Hank Pittleman.
Soon Archer discovers that recovering the debt won't be so easy. The indebted man has a furious grudge against Hank and refuses to pay; Hank's clever mistress has her own designs on Archer; and both Hank and Archer's stern parole officer, Miss Crabtree, are keeping a sharp eye on him. When a murder takes place right under Archer's nose, police suspicions rise against the ex-convict, and Archer realizes that the crime could send him right back to prison. Hunting the Eagles. Book 2. Arrows of Fury: Empire II.
The Battle of the Lost Eagle saved Hadrian's Wall , but the new Roman governor of Britannia must stamp out the rebellion of the northern tribes or risk losing the province. Death could result from a careless word as easily as from an enemy spear Worse, one of them is close on his heels. Outlander: A Novel. Unforgettable characters.
Empire: Wounds Of Honour By Anthony Riches - P/B Book | eBay
Rich historical detail. I am not a fan of this style of historical fiction, but so many others are and apart from criticisms about modernity and giving an ancient culture the loud scarlet wash of our modern culture, there is still plenty the book has to offer readers. The writing is not awful, except for the dense use of modern words and mannerisms, I thought it was pretty good. The plot is not too deep and presents as fun to most no doubt, even I was enjoying the story for the first 80 pages or so and was able to overcome my aversions.
The book is far from being pulp fiction rubbish. There is plenty of skill and research within it.

The author has put a lot of effort into this book and for that reason I would never condemn it to anyone. If anyone were to ask me, I would explain that it is a just a case of being incompatible. Then I would recommend the book to them because in my experience the majority are going to like it. I have seen this first hand as I read the book with others and I know others who rave about the series all the time.
I will always be honest if I think a book is awful and have given it two stars because of it. However, in the case of Wounds of Honour I am not giving it two stars for that reason. I am giving it two stars because it is not my kind of book. Simple as that. View all 48 comments. Shelves: reviewed , roman-britain. I kept reading to the end to see the outcome of the story. The book was not badly written on the whole, but I personally hated the vulgarisms, profanity, modernisms, and absolute coarseness.
Dialogue was terrible. You only have to read the extended quote where Marcus is haranguing his men, to see what I mean. The soldiers, garrison life and 'basic training' sounded like modern GIs transplanted into an ancient Roman setting. Had Mr.

Wounds of Honour: Empire I (Paperback)
The setting: of Roman auxiliaries--the Tungrians--on Hadrian's Wall was original. I think the author was trying to show male bonding as a main theme. Any gruesomeness of battle scenes did not bother me, but the love interest subplot was not plausible and clumsily done.
