Title: I am Rome :
Remainder of title: a novel of Julius Caesar /
Summary, etc. note: "The runaway international bestseller - part sweeping historical epic, part legal thriller - following the trial that shaped the life of the young Julius Caesar and gave root to an immortal legacy. Every legend has a beginning. Rome, 77 B.C. Senator Dolabella, known for using violence against anyone who opposes him, is going on trial for corruption and has already hired the best lawyers and even bought the jury. No man dares accept the role of prosecutor - until, against all odds, an unknown twenty-three-year-old steps out to lead the case, defend the people of Rome, and defy the power of the elite class. This lawyer's name is Caius Julius Caesar. Masterfully combining exhaustive historical rigor with extraordinary narrative skills, Santiago Posteguillo shows us the man behind the myth of Caesar as never before, taking us to the dangerous streets of Rome where the Senate's henchmen lurk on every corner, submerging us in the thick of battle, and letting us live the great love story of Julius Caesar and his wife, Cornelia. After Julius Caesar, the world was never the same. I Am Rome tells the tale of the early events that shaped this extraordinary man's fate - and changed the course of history itself"--
