The facts about Pontius Pilate are very few. We know not when he was born or died. We know nothing of his career before he became Governor of Judea, and nothing of what happened to him after he was recalled by Tiberius. Everyone has his own Pilate, each symbolic of something, each a projection of his own idea of who this man actually was. Anne Wroe has supplied us with some surprises, and glimpses into his everyday life, a man actually walking on a marble floor in Caesarea, feeling his shoes pinch, clicking his fingers for a slave, while the clouds of lasting infamy gather over his head.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The sheer skill of the writing... the touch of a master-novelist... Few have ever explored so imaginatively, or with such passionate attention to detail." - "Sunday Telegraph

"Extraordinary and compelling." - "Sunday Telegraph

"Ann Wroe's knowledge of the past 2,000 years is encyclopaedic--She manages to keep Pilate living and breathing in the text, and occasionally kicking and screaming." - "Independent on Sunday
