Description

Gathering Imperium, Lustrum and Dictator into one beautifully presented hardback volume.

With a new introduction by the author

‘Laws are silent in times of war.’ – Cicero

One of the great epics of political and historical fiction, The Cicero Trilogy charts the career of the Roman statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero from his mid-twenties as an ambitious young lawyer to his dramatic death more than thirty years later, pursued by an assassination squad on a cliff-top path.

The extraordinary life that unfolds between these two episodes is recounted by Cicero’s private secretary, Tiro: the law cases and the speeches that made his master’s name; the elections and conspiracies he fought; the rivals who contended for power around him – Pompey, Crassus, Cato, Clodius, Catalina, and, most menacingly, Caesar; and, at the heart of it all, the complex personality of Cicero himself – brilliant, cunning, duplicitous, anxious, brave, and always intensely humane.

More than ten years in the writing, and now published in a single volume for the first time, The Cicero Trilogy brings the world of the Roman republic vividly to life. Here is its grandeur, ambition and corruption; and here is its tumultuous collapse into dictatorship and anarchy – a story of the fragility of democratic institutions that holds a warning for our own time.
