  • In Harris's hands, the great game becomes a beautiful one

    The Times
  • Genres ancient and modern have rarely been so skilfully synthesised... Gripping and accomplished

    Tom Holland, The Guardian
  • A joy to read in every way, and as a mirror to the politics of our present age has no equal

    The Independent
  • Harris deploys the devices of the thriller writer to trace the perils and triumphs of Cicero's ascent ... A finely accomplished recreation of the power struggles of more than two millenniums ago

    The Observer
