Cicero Trilogy #2.
Cicero returns to continue his struggle to grasp supreme power in the state of Rome. Amidst treachery, vengeance, violence, and treason, this brilliant lawyer, orator, and philosopher finally reaches the summit of all his ambitions.
Cicero becomes known as the world's first professional politician, using his compassion, and deviousness, to overcome all obstacles.
Compelling historical fiction at its best: Harris employs historical detail and an engrossing plot to give readers a man who is by turns a sympathetic hero and compromising manipulator who sets himself up for his own massive, violent ruin.
This trilogy charges forward, propelled by the strength of Harris's stunningly fascinating prose.
