Publisher's Summary

Many men killed Julius Caesar. Only one man was determined to kill the killers. 

The Last Assassin dazzlingly charts an epic turn of history through the eyes of an unheralded man. It is a hunt that an emperor wanted to hide, of torture and terror, politics and poetry, of ideas and their consequences, a gripping story of fear, revenge and survival.

Rather An Unusual Story

A story of events, names,, places and adventures. Apparently the source wrote it ten years after the events though I domt know the age of the manuscripts. My first book from classical times. I wouldn't read it again. I did however, enjoy the reader, would gladly listen to him again.
