Reviews

  • "[Lustrum] stands on its own merits as a thoroughly engaging historical novel. Republican Rome, with all its grandeur and corruption, has rarely been made as vivid as it appears in Harris's book. The allure of power and the perils that attend it have seldom been so brilliantly anatomised in a thriller."

    The Sunday Times
  • "Harris never makes his comparisons between Rome and modern Britain explicit, but they are certainly there. And that's the principal charm of his ancient thrillers - their up-to-dateness."

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "Intrigue and excitement all the way, brilliantly read by Oliver Ford Davies."
