“Alison Morton handles this intriguing premise with her customary panache in AURELIA.” - Ruth Downie
1960s’ action adventure thriller set in Roma Nova, the sole remnant of the Roman Empire to survive into the 20th century. Former Praetorian Aurelia Mitela, sent to Berlin to investigate silver smuggling, barely escapes a near-lethal trap. She clashes with the mysterious and attractive Miklós, a known smuggler who knows too much, and is nearly terminated by Caius Tellus, a Roma Novan she has despised and feared since childhood.
In the best crime thriller style, she discovers her old enemy is at the heart of all her troubles. She pursues him back home to Roma Nova, but he strikes at her most vulnerable point – her young daughter.
One of Roma Nova’s imperial strong women in this alternative history thriller, Aurelia is fallible before her implacable enemy. Can she stop him before he strangles Roma Nova’s lifeblood and her child?
Fourth in the Roma Nova thriller series, this is the first of the AURELIA trilogy about a Roma Novan who is less of a female detective and more of a special forces fixer. INSURRECTIO and RETALIO (out late April 2017) complete the trilogy.
