"Triumphant, compelling and deeply moving...the finest fictional
treatment of Ancient Rome in the English language. They are
distinguished by the mastery of the sources, sympathetic
imagination, political intelligence and narrative skill...It's a
wonderful, dramatic, story, wonderfully told" -- Scotsman * Allan
"Robert Harris's Cicero trilogy ends in grand style...the culmination of 12 years work and a remarkable literary achievement" * Observer *
"The book works...more than that; at times it sings... Thrillers are supposed to thrill, but few really do raise your heart rate and short-circuit your critical faculties...Exhilarating...This trilogy deserves the highest compliment that can be paid to a work of historical fiction" * The Times *

"Harris's fascination with politics galvanises his impressive knowledgeableness into compulsive fiction" -- Peter Kemp * The Sunday Times, Books of the Year *
