Dictator by Robert Harris

Laws are silent in times of war…

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.

Exiled, separated from his wife and children, his possessions confiscated, his life constantly in danger, Cicero is tormented by the knowledge that he has sacrificed power for the sake of his principles.

His 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.

Riveting and tumultuous, Dictator encompasses some of the most epic events in human history yet is also an intimate portrait of a brilliant, flawed, frequently fearful yet ultimately brave man – a hero for his time and for ours.  This is an unforgettable tour de force from a master storyteller.

Peer & Press Reviews

Dictator is a fitting finale to a trilogy that is likely to stand alongside the works of Robert Graves and Mary Renault as an enduring imaginative vision of the ancient world.

The Guardian

Staying close to the sources, Harris picks his way masterfully through Cicero’s personal and political dilemmas… superb… does full justice to one of Rome’s most interesting complex and humane statesmen, whose pragmatic political treatises proved so influential during the renaissance and enlightenment.

Evening Standard

Superb… confirms Harris’s undisputed place as our leading master of both the historical and contemporary thriller.
