Robert Harris - Imperium (Cicero #1) (2nd Hand Hardback)
Cicero Trilogy #1
Of all the great figures of the Roman world, none was more fascinating or charismatic than Cicero. And Tiro - the inventor of shorthand and author of numerous books, including a celebrated biography of his master (which was lost in the Dark Ages) - was always by his side.
Compellingly written in Tiro's voice, Imperium is the re-creation of his vanished masterpiece, recounting in vivid detail the story of Cicero's quest for glory, competing with some of the most powerful and intimidating figures of his - or any other - age: Pompey, Caesar, Crassus, and the many other powerful Romans who changed history.

"Robert Harris, the world's master of innovative historical fiction, lures us into a violent, treacherous world of Roman politics at once exotically different from and yet startlingly similar to our own - a world of Senate intrigue and electoral corruption, special prosecutors and political adventurism - to describe how one clever, compassionate, devious, vulnerable man fought to reach the top." - Publisher.
"As explosive as Etna, as addictive as a thriller, as satisfying as great history."
- Daily Telegraph.
