Imperium

Imperium

Author(s): Robert Harris

Location(s): Rome

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): 70 BC

When Tiro, the confidential secretary of a Roman senator, opens the door to a terrified stranger on a cold November morning, he sets in motion a chain of events which will eventually propel his master into one of the most famous courtroom dramas in history.

The stranger is a Sicilian, a victim of the island’s corrupt Roman governor, Verres. The senator is Cicero, a brilliant young lawyer and spellbinding orator, determined to attain imperium – supreme power in the state.

Compellingly written in Tiro’s voice, Imperium takes us into the violent, treacherous world of Roman politics, and the quest of one man – clever, compassionate, devious, vulnerable, and above all Roman – to reach the top.
