" This is an historical novel based upon the career of the great Roman orator, Cicero, as recounted by his slave. It is non-challenging comfort reading with just enough historical detail to keep it interesting. Even I, a non-expert on Roman history, recognize many anachronisms in the text, but it did help me get through a nasty cold and so I'm grateful to the author. Books don't have to be great to be enjoyable. "
