Rome, AD 72. 'I still can't believe I've put the bastard away for good!' Petro muttered. Petronius Longus, captain of the Aventine watch, and Marcus Didius Falco's oldest friend, has finally nailed one of Rome's top criminals -Ealbinus. But under Roman law citizens cannot be imprisoned; instead they are allowed 'time to depart' from the Empire to go into permanent exile. One dark and gloomy dawn, Falco and Petro put the evil Balbinus aboard ship at the port of Ostia, thinking that this is the last they will ever hear of him.
