    It’s Rome, 63bc. In a city on the brink of acquiring a vast empire, seven men are struggling for power. Cicero is consul, Caesar his ruthless young rival, Pompey the republic’s greatest general, Crassus its richest man, Cato a political fanatic, Catilina a psychopath, and Clodius is an ambitious playboy. The stories of these real historical figures - their alliances and betrayals, their cruelties and seductions, their brilliance and their crimes - are all interleaved to form this epic novel.

    Simon Forsyth says: "Brilliantly told story of ancient Rome"

    Overall

    This book follows smoothly on from another of Robert Harris' books: Imperium, which is also an excellent work. A wonderful historical story from the point of view of the dedicated slave/secretary of Cicero. Bill Willis is an amazing narrator, bringing extra life to an already enthralling story.
