“Alison Morton has built a fascinating, exotic world! Carina’s a bright, sassy detective with a winning dry sense of humour. I warmed to her quickly and wanted to find out how she dealt with the problems thrown in her path. The plot is pretty snappy too and gets off to a quick start which made it easy to keep turning the pages.

There are a fair number of alternative historical fictions where Rome never disappeared, but for my money this is one of the better ones.”
Simon Scarrow, author of the Eagle (Macro and Cato) series of Roman novels

“I can’t resist an alternative history and Alison Morton writes one of the best. Powerful storytelling, vivid characters and a page-turning plot makes Alison Morton’s PERFIDITAS a must read.”
Jean Fullerton, author of the historical East London novels

“I hugely enjoyed this second thriller in Alison Morton’s trilogy. I find I’ve become quite attached to the beautiful, tough and resourceful Carina. Alison Morton has constructed a beguilingly convincing fictional empire. Roma Nova is a matriarchal dynasty where the women who hold sway are strong, intelligent – and anything but soft and fluffy.

The plot is complex and clever; the scenes and characterisations so vividly described that I almost felt I was watching a movie in my mind at times.  Come to think of it, Carina’s adventures would make a very good movie – film industry take note! This compelling tale rendered me inseparable from my copy right up to the last turn of the page. I was bereft when it ended. Always a good sign. Roll on the next one!”
Sue Cook, writer and broadcaster
