Author Robert Harris was born in Nottingham, England in 1957. He attended King Edward VII College and Selwyn College. He has worked as a BBC journalist, the Political Editor of the Observer, and a columnist for The Sunday Times and Daily Telegraph. He was named Columnist of the Year by the British Press in 2003. He has written both fiction and nonfiction books and currently lives in Berkshire, England.
A vibrant reading by British actor/multiple Audie Award winner Simon Jones brings instantly to life Harris's second title in his Cicero trilogy, following the international best seller Imperium (2006), also available from Recorded Books and S. & S. Audio. At the height of his political power and popularity, Cicero must thwart both an assassination attempt and a serious plot to overthrow the Republic. The story is wryly and amusingly told from the slave-as-fly-on-the-wall perspective of Cicero's secretary, Tiro. A very thoughtful and engaging novel highly recommended for adult audiences.
[An alternate abridged and unabridged edition, read by Oliver Ford Davies, is available through S. & S. Audio; the Publishers Weekly best-selling S. & S. Ac was recommended for "readers who enjoy the complexities of Steven Saylor's historical Roman mysteries and the historical detail of Colleen McCullough's Master of Rome' series", LJ 2/15/10.-Ed.] - Cliff Glaviano, Bowling Green State Univ.
