Lustrum

Arrow Books

Rome, 63 BC.

In a city on the brink of acquiring a vast empire,
seven men are struggling for power.
Cicero is consul,
Caesar his ruthless young rival,
Pompey the republic's greatest general,
Crassus its richest man,
Cato a political fanatic,
Catilina a psychopath,
Clodius an ambitious playboy.

The stories of these real historical figures - their alliances and betrayals, their cruelties and seductions, their brilliance and their crimes - are all interleaved to form this epic novel. Its narrator is Tiro, a slave who serves as confidential secretary to the wily, humane, complex Cicero. He knows all his master's secrets - a dangerous position to be in.

From the discovery of a child's mutilated body, through judicial execution and a scandalous trial, to the brutal unleashing of the Roman mob,
Lustrum is a study in the timeless enticements and horrors of power.
