On the eve of Marcus Cicero's inauguration as consul of Rome, the grisly death of a boy sends ripples of fear thourgh a city already wracked by civil unrest, crime, and debauchery of every kind. For Cicero, the ill forebodings of this hideous murder only increase his frustrations and the dangers he already faces as Rome's leader: elected by the people but despised by the heads of the two rival camps, the patricians and populists. There is also a plot to assassinate him, and it will take all the embattled consul's wit, strength, and force of will to stop it and keep Rome from becoming a dictatorship.

Harris' IMPERIUM and CONSPIRATA (same as LUSTRUM) should be read/heard together in that sequence. They form a complex, fascinating, and deep affecting tapestry of the subversion of the Roman Republic. Are moderate leaders always to be pushed aside by the most power-hungry and ruthless, right wing or left? Brilliantly performed by the reader. (A third novel in the series may be coming. Cicero was a pre-eminent figure. His greatest achievement came years later in his splendid philosophical works.)
