Summary: Marcus Tullius Cicero and Marcus Junius Brutus both played their part in the destruction of the Roman Republic. While one vacillated on the fringes of power, the other was persuaded to figurehead the plot to assassinate Julius Caesar. With a supporting cast of friends, relatives, eunuchs and conspirators, this is the (somewhat) true story of how it happened.

Prologue // 1: Good Omens // 2: On a Knife’s Edge // 3: The Die Is Cast // 4: Liberators // 5: Born Again // 6: Power and Freedom // 6a: Two Letters on the Subject of Antony // 7: The Bravery of a Nervous Man // 8: A Debt of Nature

Prologue - in which Cicero mixes his metaphors, a battle is lost, and Brutus makes a proposition.

Wonderful beginning. Can`t wait for the next chapters. Nice to find a fellow Cicero-fan, especially one so gifted in the art of writing...
Please continue as soon as possible.
