About The Book

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.

 

Harris employs historical detail and a popular plot to give listeners a man who is by turns a sympathetic hero and power-obsessed manipulator who sets himself up for his own massive, violent ruin. This series charges forward, propelled by the strength of Harris’s stunningly fascinating prose.
