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

Carina is an experienced Praetorian officer tasked with protecting Roma Nova – the last remnant of the Roman Empire to survive into the present and ruled by women. Dealing with a blackmail letter seems simple, but her husband Conradus’s indiscretion twenty-five years before not only threatens to destroy him and their children but also the imperial family itself.

For once, Carina may not have the mental and physical strength to defeat this nemesis from the past. In the final agonising confrontation, Carina has to make the hardest decision of her life…

An adventure thriller with a difference: strong female characters and more than a dip into the Roman historical fiction world.

– Sue Cook, writer and broadcaster
