This version has now been replaced by the one published on 5 November 2018, ISBN-13: 979-1097310127ASIN: B07K17L2NL. 'The second fall of Rome?'Aurelia Mitela, ex-Praetorian and imperial councillor in Roma Nova, scoffs at her intelligence chief when he throws a red file on her desk.But 1980s Roma Nova, the last province of the Roman Empire that has survived into the twentieth century, has problems - a ruler frightened of governing, a centuries-old bureaucracy creaking for reform and, worst of all, a rising nationalist movement with a charismatic leader.Horrified when her daughter is brutally attacked in a demonstration turned riot, Aurelia tries to rally resistance to the growing fear and instability. But it may already be too late to save Roma Nova from meltdown and herself from entrapment and destruction by her lifelong enemy...
Alison Morton was born and brought up in West Kent. A 'Roman nut' since age 11, she continues to be fascinated by that complex, power and value-driven civilisation. Armed with an MA in history, six years' military service and the love of a good thriller, she explores via her Roma Nova adventure thrillers - 'INCEPTIO', 'PERFIDITAS', 'SUCCESSIO' and 'AURELIA' - the 'what if' idea of a modern Roman society run by strong women. INSURRECTIO is the second book in the 'AURELIA' cycle. Alison now lives in France with her husband, cultivates a Roman herb garden and is writing the sixth Roma Nova book.
