Carina Mitela is still a young inexperienced officer in the Praetorian Guard Special Forces of Roma Nova. Disgraced and smarting from a period in the cells for a disciplinary offence, she is sent out of everybody's way on a seemingly straightforward mission overseas.
All she and her comrade-in-arms, Flavius, have to do is bring back a traitor from the Republic of Quebec. Under no circumstances must she risk entering the Eastern United States where she is still wanted under her old name Karen Brown. But when she investigates further she discovers a conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of Roma Nova. What price is personal danger against fulfilling the mission?
This part mystery, part detective story is Roman fiction brought up to the 21st century through alternate history. Set in the time after INCEPTIO but before PERFIDITAS in the Roma Nova thriller series, this short military adventure reveals hidden parts of Carina's early life in Roma Nova. And North America isn't the continent we know in our timeline...
A thriller with a difference and a dip into a 'what if' Roman historical fiction world. If you enjoy reading mystery books featuring a female protagonist with heart and courage, this could be for you!
