"Fast-paced, well-written and full of angst, PERFIDITAS was a very entertaining read!" – History Undressed
Captain Carina Mitela of the Praetorian Guard Special Forces is in trouble. One colleague tries to slice her jugular. Another sets a trap to incriminate her in a conspiracy to topple the government of Roma Nova, the last Roman outpost in 21st century Europe,
Proscribed and operating illegally, separated from her family and children, Carina risks being terminated by both security services and conspirators. Seeking help from a friend immersed in the crime world would wreck her marriage to the enigmatic Conrad.
Is Carina strong enough to choose between being a great criminal or a great counterspy, and between two men – the sophisticated and amoral Apollodorus or the upright Praetorian commander Conradus, her children’s father. And can she save her beloved Roma Nova and her own life in making those choices?
Part conspiracy thriller, part military fiction, part a story of personal betrayal, this is Roman fiction brought up to the 21st century with a strong female protagonist with heart and courage leading the action. If you enjoy reading mystery books for women with plenty of twists, this is for you!
