Set in the last days of the Roman Republic, this historical novel is grand in scope and vivid in visual and historical detail. Gaius Julius Caesar is both adored and despised throughout the empire—but his rule remains unshakable. Forced by civil war to leave his beguiling mistress Cleopatra, Caesar turns his eye to the future: who is to inherit the throne of Roman power? While rumors of murder surround him, Caesar seeks to uncover who among his associates has the cunning and skill to fell him and brave the dangerous consequences of such a cataclysmic act. En el apogeo de su carrera, Julio César ha sometido a sus enemigos y ensanchado el imperio hasta los confines del mundo conocido. Concentra pues sus energías en el bienestar de Roma y en afianzar su poder, consciente de las envidias que suscita. Muchos de los que le rodean consideran sus atribuciones de dictador como una amenaza para la República. Entre ellos, el lujurioso Marco Antonio, el resentido Cayo Casio o el virtuoso Marco Bruto. Todos en deuda con César; al que odian en secreto. Sin heredero legítimo, César, cuyo único hijo es fruto de su unión con Cleopatra, verá en el joven Octavio a su posible sucesor.
