To Oliver Johnson at Century, REBELS AND TRAITORS (September 2009) by Lindsey Davis, a departure from the author's Falco Roman mysteries. The novel tells the story of Gideon Jukes and Juliana Lovell, on opposite sides of the Parliamentarian/Royalist divide, but fated to be brought together by adversity, loss and mutual attraction. Johnson describes it as "an absolute epic masterpiece of inspired story telling, poignant and convincing characterisation and razor sharp historical realism: in short, everything she has achieved over 20 years with her Roman books, but on a larger scale". Davis's next Falco novel, Nemesis, will appear in June 2010. Century has UK and Commonwealth rights in Rebels and Traitors through Heather Jeeves.
