About this item
Robert Harris's bestselling IMPERIUM followed the political rise of Marcus Cicero in ancient Rome, but left readers hanging on the eve of Cicero's greatest victory: his inauguration as Roman Consul, the Republic's highest office. In CONSPIRATA, again narrated by Cicero's faithful slave and secretary Tiro, Cicero must navigate the treacherous waters of Roman politics while beset on all sides by those eager for his downfall. Chief among his rivals is an ambitious star of the senate named Julius Caesar. Adding to the intrigue is the twisted murder of a boy as a human sacrifice, an outlawed practice that sets Rome abuzz with gossip and fear. Harris once again proves his ability to corral the complex plots of ancient history into an utterly gripping read.
