Revolution! More like crime...

Waking up to find her fiancé dead in their bed in a London hotel was not how Mel thought her new life with Gérard would begin. Nor facing years of prison for his murder.

Three days ago, dual-national Mel threw in her job as an intelligence analyst with the French special forces to marry Gérard. Now with British cop McCracken determined to pin the homicide on her, Mel will do anything to track down the killer.

Forced to work with McCracken, Mel begins to unpick her fiancé’s secret life in a web of international money laundering and terrorism.

Not entirely sure of her own identity, her trust is stretched to the limit when she goes undercover and discovers almost everybody around her is hiding a second self.

And then she is hit by  the ultimate betrayal…


A second one in the new series is due later in 2021.

But the foundation story of Roma Nova is also is the pipeline – FONDATIO – so there is plenty coming up in 2021!
