Book four in the epic Masters of Rome series. Rome. 68 BC. Julius Caesar has proved himself a brilliant general.
But when he returns to Rome he lays down arms only to take up another battle: this time for political power.
This is a war waged with words, plots, schemes, metaphotical assassinations - but also with seduction and guile.
Love is just another weapon in Caesar's political arsenal, for the key to political glory lies with Rome's noblewomen: powerful, vindictive Servilia, whose son Brutus deeply resents his mother's passionate, destructive relationhshiop with Caesar; Rome's revered Vestal Virgins; and even Caesar's own daughter, sacrificed on the altar of his ambition.
