Summary (From the publisher):

Fear, intrigue, betrayal and cruelty were the order of the day during Tiberius Caesar's tyrannical rule of the Roman Empire—and No King But Caesar evokes these times with stunning immediacy and pertinence.

In the story of Quintus, a bold officer who yearned for justice, and of Diana, the willful daughter of a leading citizen, there appears also a tender phase—for then as now the human heart defied dictatorship. Their marriage, made as a bargain and initially shadowed by distrust, was intimately entwined with the plots, the jealousies, the ruthless ambitions of those in power.

It was only in Jerusalem, where Quintus was a witness as Pontius Pilate ordered the crucifixion of a radical young preacher from Nazareth, that the first stirrings of a possible new order emerged—an order of love and mercy rather than connivance and cruelty.

And through a series of dramtatic developments, this new spirit was to infuse the bond between Quintus and Diana.
