"A high-gauge stainless steel needle was not the way I thought I would die."

Ex-Praetorian officer Aurelia Mitela must discover who is manipulating the silver smuggling destroying the economy of her beloved Roma Nova. Who set a lethal trap for her in Berlin? One person fits the bill perfectly, but can she catch him before he kills her?

1960s Roma Nova. A former military commander, Aurelia is one of her country's strong women, but she doubts in her heart and mind that she can overcome her implacable enemy, Caius Tellus. Or should she arrest the mysterious and attractive Miklós – a smuggler who knows too much?

First in the Aurelia Mitela adventures, where Roman fiction is brought into the 20th century through an alternative history lens. INSURRECTIO, NEXUS (novella) and RETALIO follow on.

"A racing climax and a fully satisfying ending" – Kate Quinn
