ABOUT
THE BOOK

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.
