“It’s about Roman blood, survival and money. Mostly yours.”
Stifled by the protective cocoon of her Roma Novan family, deceived by her new lover, she propels herself into a dangerous mission. But then the killer sets a trap – she must sacrifice herself for another – and she sees no escape.
A thriller laced with romance and coming of age, this is Roman fiction brought into the 21st century through the lens of alternative history and driven by a female protagonist with heart and courage.
“Eve Dallas meets Lindsey Davis’s Roman detective Falco meets The Hunger Games.”
