Captain Carina Mitela of the Praetorian Guard Special Forces is in trouble - one military 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 1,600 years ago by Roman dissidents and ruled by women, Roma Nova barely survived a devastating coup d'état 30 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.
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 grew up in West Kent. She completed a BA in French, German and economics and, 30 years later, an MA in history. She now lives in France with her husband. A Roman nut since age 11, she has visited sites throughout Europe including the alma mater, Rome. But it was walking on the mosaics at Ampurias (Spain) that triggered her wondering what a modern Roman society would be like if run by women....

Passionate and Powerful!!#
"This is an excellent book. I could hardly put it down. The chemistry of the characters was wonderful and enhanced the suspense.""A high octane, action-packed thriller.... There is so much action and intrigue in this book and every scene is driven by a powerful emotion, such as lust, love or savage hatred.

Good as a book, even better as an Audio Book
Would you listen to Perfiditas again? Why?
Listening to the entire series (recorded so far) on Audible while laid up in bed for a few days 'unavoidable rest' was a fantastic few days of entertainment. I thoroughly enjoyed the company of Ms Morton's characters - now then Audible, where's the rest of the series?
What was one of the most memorable moments of Perfiditas?
A 1005 all-round good book - from 'cover to cover' - all of it too exciting to single out particular scenes!
What does Caitlin Thorburn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Very Good. She has a nice, relaxed voice.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
If this was a hardcopy book I would have been turning the pages as quickly as possible to find out what happened next!
Any additional comments?
Brilliant. (says it all)
