9780230714564: Ides of March
From the Publisher:

March, 44 BC. Rome, in all her glory, has expanded her territories beyond the wildest dreams of her citizens, led by Caius Julius Caesar — Pontifex Maximus, dictator perpetuo, invincible military leader and only fifty-six years old. He is a man in command of his destiny, who wields enormous power throughout the vast empire. However his god-given mission – to end the blood-splattered fratricidal wars, reconcile implacably hostile factions and preserve Roman civilization and world order – is teetering dangerously close to collapse… His power is draining away. None of his supporters can stop the inexorably evolving plot against him and prophecy will explode into truth on the Ides of March and the world will change forever.

This is political thriller laced through with all the intrigue and action surrounding one of the most crucial turning points in the history of western civilization.

From the Inside Flap:

March, 44 BC. Rome, in all her glory, has expanded her territories beyond the wildest dreams of her citizens, led by Caius Julius Caesar — Pontifex Maximus, dictator perpetuo, invincible military leader and only fifty-six years old. He is a man in command of his destiny, who wields enormous power. However his god-given mission – to end the blood-splattered fratricidal wars, reconcile implacably hostile factions and preserve Roman civilization and world order – is teetering dangerously close to collapse…

Paralyzed by incessant plotting and intrigues at court, he has launched yet another military campaign - against the Parthians this time. But his power is draining away. It is too late. Neither the heroic Publius Sestus, Caesar’s most faithful legionnaire and comrade of a thousand battles, who gallops to Rome in a race against time to save Caesar’s life, nor the loving devotion of Calpurnia, Caesar’s wife, nor the attentions of his mistress Servilia, his physician Antistius or his second-in-command Silius Salvidienus can succeed in halting the inexorably evolving plot against him. For prophecy will explode into truth on the Ides of March and the world will change forever.

Valerio Massimo Manfredi, the bestselling author of the Alexander trilogy and The Last Legion has created, in The Ides of March , a gripping thriller that masterfully unravels the political scheming, emotional intensity and dramatic power surrounding one of the most crucial turning points in the history of western civilization.
