Garro: Shield of Lies by James Swallow, is an audio drama in the Horus Heresy Series. It was first published in October 2014.

Cover Description

While the war rages on across the galaxy, for many on the Throneworld of Terra it exists only in rumour and hearsay. But in the course of her daily duties, humble adept Katanoh Tallery discovers evidence of a conspiracy within the Administratum - surely, this can only be the precursor to a traitor attack on the Solar System itself! Fleeing into the shadows, she soon finds herself at the mercy of the mysterious Knight-Errant Nathaniel Garro. Will this stalwart defender of mankind be her saviour, or her executioner?

Plot

Ships and supplies were quietly siphoned off other projects and covertly sent to Titan under the code name Othrys. These shipments were discovered by Administratum Scribe-Adepta Second Classificate Katanoah Tallery when she was processing cargo shipping through the Riga Orbital Plate over Terra, and she believed that they represented a Horus-backed plot to undermine the Imperium via the Departmento Munitorum. An attempt to alert others to the discovery caused her to be hunted, but she was rescued by Nathaniel Garro who believed her story about a possible threat to the Imperium. He was aboard the plate searching for Saint Keeler, and Tallery's devotion to the Lectito Devinatus persuaded him to her honesty.[1]

After slipping aboard a derelict ship sent to be used as material to build a fortress monastery on Titan, they managed to navigate through various construction sites as they discovered esoteric weapons being shipped in and the arrival of the Mertiol wounded arriving. They managed to fight their way to the top of the newly constructed fortress only to find Malcador awaiting them. Upon discovery, Malcador revealed that it was not a traitorous plot but one that would ensure humanity would be able to fight the growing threat of Chaos after the Horus Heresy came to an end. However, Tallery could not live with the knowledge, and Malcador ordered Garro to execute her. Garro rebelled against the order, and Malcador relented, taking Tallery into confidence and putting her to use in completing the facility as Curator-Adepta Primus.[1]
