In her new book about the men who were instrumental in establishing the Rome of the Emperors, Colleen McCullough tells the story of a famous love affair and a man whose sheer ability could lead to only one end -- assassination. As The October Horse begins, Gaius Julius Caesar is at the height of his stupendous career. When he becomes embroiled in a civil war between Egypt's King Ptolemy and Queen Cleopatra, he finds himself torn between the fascinations of a remarkable woman and his duty as a Roman. Though he must leave Cleopatra, she remains a force in his life as a lover and as the mother of his only son, who can never inherit Caesar's Roman mantle, and therefore cannot solve his father's greatest dilemma -- who will be Caesar's Roman heir? A hero to all of Rome except to those among his colleagues who see his dictatorial powers as threats to the democratic system they prize so highly, Caesar is determined not to be worshiped as a god or crowned king, but his unique situation conspires to make it seem otherwise. Swearing to bring him down, Caesar's enemies masquerade as friends and loyal supporters while they plot to destroy him. Among them are his cousin and Master of the Horse, Mark Antony, feral and avaricious, priapic and impulsive; Gaius Trebonius, the nobody, who owes him everything; Gaius Cassius, eaten by jealousy; and the two Brutuses, his cousin Decimus, and Marcus, the son of his mistress Servilia, sad victim of his mother and of his uncle Cato, whose daughter he marries. All are in Caesar's debt, all have been raised to high positions, all are outraged by Caesar's autocracy. Caesar must die, they decide, for only when he is dead will Rome return to her old ways, her old republican self. With her extraordinary knowledge of Roman history, Colleen McCullough brings Caesar to life as no one has ever done before and surrounds him with an enormous and vivid cast of historical characters, characters like Cleopatra who call to us from beyond the centuries, for McCullough's genius is to make them live again without losing any of the grandeur that was Rome. Packed with battles on land and sea, with intrigue, love affairs, and murders, the novel moves with amazing speed toward the assassination itself, and then into the ever more complex and dangerous consequences of that act, in which the very fate of Rome is at stake. The October Horse is about one of the world's pivotal eras, relating as it does events that have continued to echo even into our own times.

Il romanzo racconta il culmine della parabola di Giulio Cesare dopo la vittoria a Farsalo contro Pompeo, l’amore per Cleopatra e la nascita del figlio Cesarione, i malumori dei circoli aristocratici che sfociano nella congiura di Bruto e Cassio, fino all’assassinio di Cesare e all’ascesa di Ottaviano, erede designato e futuro imperatore. In un turbinio di intrighi, battaglie e tormentate storie d’amore, Colleen McCullough ci mette davanti agli occhi uomini e donne d’eccezione - Cesare e il suo genio politico, Cleopatra regina innamorata, l’avido e brutale Marco Antonio, il giovane Ottaviano, feroce, vendicativo, destinato a fondare e guidare l’Impero - e racconta un’epoca capitale nella storia dell’umanità.

la storia delle idi di marzo rivisitate, con Cesare che non ne rimane vittima. Il testo è stato stimolato dalla lettura di un saggio che riferisce del programma di Cesare chiarendo quella che l'autore definisce una prpospettiva illuminista. Il divieto all'utilizzo del lavoro servile in agricoltura, ovvero un provvedimenmto decisamente favorevole ai populares e agli italici si accompagnava al taglio del canale di Corinto e all'unificazione di pesi e misure in area romana e altro. Poi, approfondendo le motivazioni dei cesaricidi, è emerso dalle letture che quegli uomini erano coinvolti nel pubblicanato e nel prestito a strozzo in Asia e nel settentrione africano. Sapendo che Cesare aveva mobilitato il suo amico Servilio Isaurico per contrastare la prevaricazione dei pubblicani contro coloro ai quali lui voleva estendere la cittadinanza. Lavoro dotto e interessante, consigliato a tutti gli appassionati di Cesare e della stroia romana antica

Proving once again that she is a master of suspense, bestselling author Colleen McCullough returns with a riveting sequel to On, Off. The year is 1967, and the world teeters on the brink of nuclear holocaust as the Cold War goes relentlessly on. On a beautiful spring day in the little city of Holloman, Connecticut, home to prestigious Chubb University and armaments giant Cornucopia, chief of detectives Captain Carmine Delmonico has more pressing concerns than finding a name for his infant son: twelve murders have taken place in one day, and Delmonico is drawn into a gruesome web of secrets and lies. Supported by his detective sergeants Abe Goldberg and Corey Marshall and new team member the meticulous Delia Carstairs, Delmonico embarks on what looks like an unsolvable mystery. All the murders are different and they all seem unconnected. Are they dealing with one killer, or many? How is the murder of Dee-Dee Hall, a local prostitute, related to the deaths of a mother and her disabled child? How is Chubb student Evan Pugh connected to Desmond Skeps, head of Cornucopia? And as if twelve murders were not enough, Carmine soon finds himself pitted against the mysterious Ulysses, a spy giving Cornucopia's armaments secrets to the Russians. Are the murders and espionage different cases, or are they somehow linked? When FBI special agent Ted Kelly makes himself part of the investigation, it appears the stakes are far higher than anyone had imagined, and murder is only one part of the puzzle in the set of crimes that has sent Holloman into a panic. As the overtaxed police force contends with small town politics, academic rivalry and corporate greed, the death toll mounts, and Carmine and his team discover that the answers are not what they seem -- but then, are they ever?
