Lindsay Powell                         Historical Detective

Marcus Agrippa was one of history's most intriguing right-hand men. Few played a greater role in the emperor Augustus' success. In vigorous prose, and with a finger tip feel for Roman politics and war, Lindsay Powell brings Agrippa to life.
Barry Strauss, Cornell University and author Death of Caesar.

Augustus' ascent and reign are unthinkable without Marcus Agrippa. Surprisingly, there has been no biography of Agrippa in English for some eighty years. Powell's book admirably fills this gap and will be indispensable for anyone with a serious interest in this crucial historical period.
Karl Galinsky, University of Texas at Austin and author Augustus: Introduction to the Life of an Emperor.
