'Confirms Harris's undisputed place as our leading master of both the historical and contemporary thriller' Daily Mail
There was a time when Cicero held Caesar's life in the palm of his hand.
But now Caesar is the dominant figure and Cicero's life is in ruins.
Cicero's comeback requires wit, skill and courage.
And for a brief and glorious period, the legendary orator is once more the supreme senator in Rome.
But politics is never static.
And no statesman, however cunning, can safeguard against the ambition and corruption of others.

"Superb...confirms Harris's undisputed place as our leading master of both the historical and contemporary thriller" Daily Mail "The book works...more than that; at times it sings... Thrillers are supposed to thrill, but few really do raise your heart rate and short-circuit your critical faculties...Exhilarating...This trilogy deserves the highest compliment that can be paid to a work of historical fiction" The Times "Harris is brilliant at the political then-as-now, giving Caesar with a hint of Blair - and also of Thatcher" -- Peter Stothard Spectator "Staying close to the sources, Harris picks his way masterfully through Cicero's personal and political dilemmas...superb...does full justice to one of Rome's most interesting complex and humane statesmen, whose pragmatic political treatises proved so influential during the renaissance and enlightenment" Evening Standard "Harris' version of Cicero is a tremendous creation" Independent
