Perfiditas - Front Cover_V.smSecond in the Roma Nova series. Awarded B.R.A.G. MedallionTM  February 2014. Finalist in Writing Magazine’s 2014 Self-Published Book of the Year Award 

Captain Carina Mitela of the Praetorian Guard Special Forces is in trouble – one colleague has tried to kill her and another has set a trap to incriminate her in a conspiracy to topple the government of Roma Nova. Founded sixteen hundred years ago by Roman dissidents and ruled by women, Roma Nova barely survived a devastating coup d’état thirty years ago. Carina swears to prevent a repeat and not merely for love of country.

Seeking help from a not quite legal old friend could wreck her marriage to the enigmatic Conrad. Once proscribed and operating illegally, she risks being terminated by both security services and conspirators. As she struggles to overcome the desperate odds and save her beloved Roma Nova and her own life, she faces the ultimate betrayal…


Alison Morton, a translator with an MA in history, has been a ‘Roman nut’ from age 11, but it was the mosaics at Ampurias, Spain that made her wonder what a Roman society run by women would be like in a modern age. PERFIDITAS  is the sequel to INCEPTIO, the first in a series of Roma Nova thriller novels.
