Overview

Is learning a lesson worth losing your life?

Bringing back a traitor to face trial seems an easy job for young Roma Novan officer Carina Mitela, until she is catapulted into confrontation with the powerful head of the Praetorian Guard. Will she collapse in face of corruption at high level or risk disgrace and destruction in standing up for her principles?

Carina is still a young inexperienced officer in the Praetorian Guard Special Forces of Roma Nova when she is sent on her first overseas mission. North America isn't the continent we know in our timeline, but 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.
