Publisher Comments:

The spring of 98 AD is a time of optimism in the turbulent frontier province of Britannia. Business is brisk at the mansio (inn) on the road to York that Aurelia Marcella runs with her twin brother Lucius. Then a wagon arrives bearing a local farmer with a grievous sword wound who is seeking treatment with the local Greek doctor. And Lucius appears at the mansio on a mission. When the farmer dies, the twins head for the coast to return the man to his family and to check out a shipwreck bearing valuable official cargo. A band of outlawed sea-raiders led by a Gaul are suspected of stealing it along with killing the farmer. It all adds up to the feuding that has erupted between the colonists and the natives. The natives claim the newcomers are stealing the best farmland, while the settlers accuse the locals of plotting rebellion against Rome. Both sides are using terrorist tactics: burning, kidnapping, and even murder. The trouble escalates and long-buried grudges are revived as counsellors, citizens, chiefs, and slaves mix in. But a subtle, personal agenda is at work as well--one or more of the combatants may have hired the Gauls to orchestrate the violence. This is the third novel in the Aurelia Marcella series.

Synopsis:

Spring of 98 AD is a time of optimism in the turbulent frontier province of Britannia and business is brisk at Aurelia Marcella's inn on the road to York. Then a wagon arrives bearing a grievously wounded farmer seeking treatment. Before his death, he tells Aurelia his family is in grave danger. Alarmed, Aurelia sends for her twin brother Lucius, a government investigator, and together they head for the eastern coast. Could the band of piratical Gauls working the area be cover for something worse? Friction between native farmers and Roman settlers over farmland turns to open violence. Both sides resort to terrorist tactics. Underneath it all flows a current of subtle, personal agendas.... Jane Finnis and her husband Richard live near the East Yorkshire coast. She is the author of Get Out or Die and A Bitter Chill. www.janefinnis.com
