Mid 1970s. Ex-Praetorian Aurelia Mitela is serving as Roma Nova’s interim ambassador in London. Asked by a British colleague to find his missing son, Aurelia thinks it will only be a case of a young man temporarily rebelling. He’s bound to turn up only a little worse for wear. But a spate of high-level killings pulls Aurelia away into a dangerous pan-European investigation. Badly beaten in Rome as a warning, she discovers the killers have kidnapped her life companion, Miklós, and sent an ultimatum: Back off or he’ll die. But Aurelia is a Roma Novan and they never give up…
A novella set between AURELIA and INSURRECTIO in the award-winning Roma Nova alternate history thriller series – Ancient Rome brought into the 20th century, and ruled by women.
