Rome, 80 BC.
A wealthy landowner has been murdered in the street. His son, Sextus Roscius, is accused of the crime. When every lawyer in the city turns down his case, there's only one man who can save Roscius from a guilty verdict and a particularly grisly execution…
Marcus Tullius Cicero: a mere twenty-six years old, but a rising star in the Forum. Together with his brother, Quintus, Cicero must investigate the murder of Roscius’s father and find the true culprit; but in their quest for justice, the brothers Cicero may be about to make some very powerful enemies indeed...
"With Cicero, Big Finish takes what could be a several hundred page murder mystery and weaves it into a tale that is just under an hour. Not only is it a solid mystery that kept my attention throughout, it also provides a fun look into Ancient Rome’s justice system... And of course, we all know that since it is from Big Finish, it is a wonderfully put together audio." 18th Wall Productions
"Cicero, as a man of principle in a corrupted world, is able to sound a warning about the whole state of the nation – both his and increasingly ours – when he goes off-script and speaks from his most profound heart. It’s an air-punching oration that many will find both liberating and cathartic to hear spoken out loud." Warped Factor
"I have to applaud writer David Llewellyn for masterfully adapting the record for Marcus Tullius Cicero’s first major case — Pro Roscio Amerino or For Roscius of Ameria. Samuel Barnett and George Naylor very ably gave Llewellyn’s script depth as the brothers Cicero. They translated ancient history into an episode of Law & Order: Ancient Rome." SciFi Pulse
