LAWS ARE SILENT IN TIMES OF WAR.

Publisher Description

'Confirms Harris's undisputed place as our leading master of both the historical and contemporary thriller' Daily Mail


LAWS ARE SILENT IN TIMES OF WAR. -- Cicero

There was a time when Cicero held Caesar's life in the palm of his hand.

But now Caesar is the dominant figure and Cicero's life is in ruins.

Cicero's comeback requires wit, skill and courage.

And for a brief and glorious period, the legendary orator is once more the supreme senator in Rome.

But politics is never static.

And no statesman, however cunning, can safeguard against the ambition and corruption of others.


'The finest fictional treatment of Ancient Rome in the English language' - The Scotsman

Review

Harris's fascination with politics galvanises his impressive knowledgeableness into compulsive fiction -- Peter Kemp The Sunday Times, Books of the Year Robert Harris completes his wonderful trilogy based on the life of Cicero. I haven't enjoyed Roman history more since Robert Graves's I, Claudius -- Anthony Horowitz Guardian, Book of the Year 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 Robert Harris's Cicero trilogy ends in grand style...the culmination of 12 years work and a remarkable literary achievement Observer 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 Massie
