Subject: Various characters associated with/affected by death of Julius Caesar ---'Publius Manlius Scribo, star reporter for the Evening Tiber, find that his assignment to report on an everyday homicide draws him deep into conspiracies swirling around Rome's Great Men, who seem to sound and act just like 1930's-style gangsters. We thought Shakespeare laid on the straight dope about what really went down on the Ides of March, but like Josephine Tey, Irwin has his own version. Julius Caesar, Cleopatra, Marcus Antonius, Pompeia, Brutus and Cassius appear. Irwin's prescient dedication against Mussolini and Hitler must be the only one of its kind.' (Heli)
