"I thoroughly enjoyed this classy thriller" - The Bookseller
Pulled into a nightmare of blackmail, drugs and breakdown, 21st century Roma Novan Carina struggles to defend her family and country against a gifted and vicious enemy.

Carina is an experienced military intelligence officer and investigator tasked with protecting Roma Nova - the last remnant of the Roman Empire that's survived into the 21st century - but for once, she may not have the mental and physical strength to defeat this killer intent on destroying her and her husband's families.

Her career shot, her husband in breakdown and the children under threat of murder; her heart and nerves are at break point. But in the final agonising confrontation with her enemy, Carina has to make the hardest decision of her life...

A gripping thriller with a difference - strong female characters with heart and courage and more than a dip into the Roman historical fiction world. If you enjoy reading mystery books for women, this could be for you
