Description

'Masterful' Sunday Times Ancient Rome is the setting for a stunning novel of power and ambition from Robert Harris, the number one bestselling author of Fatherland, Enigma, Archangel and Pompeii. When Tiro, the confidential secretary of a Roman senator, opens the door to a terrified stranger on a cold November morning, he sets in motion a chain of events which will eventually propel his master into one of the most famous courtroom dramas in history. The stranger is a Sicilian, a victim of the island's corrupt Roman governor, Verres. The senator is Cicero, a brilliant young lawyer and spellbinding orator, determined to attain imperium - supreme power in the state. Compellingly written in Tiro's voice, Imperium takes us into the violent, treacherous world of Roman politics, and the quest of one man - clever, compassionate, devious, vulnerable, and above all Roman - to reach the top. Imperium, the acclaimed play cycle based on Robert Harris's Cicero novels, is running in the West End in summer 2018 - tickets now on sale!
