The Gladiator follows Macro and Cato on their return to Rome from a harrowing campaign against the Parthians. Only days into their journey, a freak tidal wave nearly capsizes their transport ship, stranding them in the devastated port of Matala in Crete. The island has been laid to waste by a powerful earthquake, destroying its cities and killing thousands. In the chaotic aftermath, large bands of slaves begin to revolt and local bandits, taking advantage of the slave rebellion, urge the Cretans to overthrow the Roman adminstration. With many of the island's troops either killed or wounded during the disaster, the governor of the province calls on Macro and Cate for help.
