Description
Britannia, 91 AD. In a raw frontier province at the edge of the Roman Empire, it has been 50 years since the legions invaded, but the land still simmers with tribal tensions, especially in the north. Even so, Roman and Briton alike are welcome in the Oak Tree Inn on the road to Eburacum, where innkeeper Aurelia Marcella has built a new life after fleeing the destruction of Pompeii. Though her roots are Roman, her heart belongs to Britannia—which makes it especially distressing when a messenger is found decapitated outside her inn, his body scrawled with the words, "All Romans will be killed." Is this an act of rebellion, or something more personal?

"Political cross-currents lead to murder in ancient York. [Jane] Finnis's well-crafted prose subtly weaves authoritative detail into a believable portrait of everyday life near the turn of the millennium. Highly readable and endlessly absorbing historical adventure."—Kirkus Reviews
