Page turners: Imperium (Erik Spanberg, 10/06/06, CS Monitor)

Robert Harris rose to prominence on the strength of several World War II historical novels, offering unique twists on what did happen - and what might have. Three years ago, though, the British author left the Nazis for Nero. That is, ancient Rome. After an initial foray ("Pompeii"), Harris returns with "Imperium," the first installment in a planned trilogy detailing the exploits of Cicero. [...]

If Harris sustains his narrative momentum, this trilogy seems sure to garner him a crown as Lord of the Laurel.
