INCEPTIO – the beginning

“Terrific. Brilliantly plotted original story, grippingly told and cleverly combining the historical with the futuristic. It’s a real edge-of-the-seat read, genuinely hard to put down.”
Sue Cook, writer and broadcaster

“She’ll be giving Marcus Didius Falco a run for his money in the Roman crime genre.”

Antoine Vanner, Dawlish Chronicles

“With action, emotion and twists galore, tension crackles from every page. This is one of the best books I’ve ever read, and 5 stars doesn’t do it justice. If I could give it 6 stars, I would.

First in the Carina Mitela strand of the Roma Nova series

New York, present day, alternate reality. Karen Brown, angry and frightened after surviving a kidnap attempt, has a harsh choice – being eliminated by government enforcer Jeffery Renschman or fleeing to mysterious Roma Nova, her dead mother’s homeland in Europe.

Founded sixteen centuries ago by Roman exiles and ruled by women, Roma Nova gives Karen safety, at a price, and a ready-made family in a strange culture she often struggles with. Just as she’s finding her feet, a shocking discovery about her new lover, special forces officer Conrad Tellus, isolates her.

And the enforcer is stalking her in her new home and nearly kills her. Recovering, she is desperate to find out why this Renschman is hunting her so viciously. Unable to rely on anybody else, she undergoes intensive training, develops fighting skills and becomes an undercover cop. But crazy with bitterness at his past failures, Renschman sets a trap for her, knowing she has no choice but to spring it.
