In late December 95 AD, Roman settlers in Britannia are preparing
to celebrate Saturnalia. Innkeeper Aurelia Marcella's plans for a
peaceful holiday are shattered when her brother brings bad news. An
enemy in Rome is trying to destroy her family by spreading rumours
that they are plotting against Caesar. Her brother has lost his job
as a government investigator, the mansio is menaced by a gang of
native criminals, and when a party of rich, demanding travelers
arrive to stay, their quarrels and violence spill over into
Aurelia's household. Then the Saturnalia banquet, highlight of the
festival, culminates in tragic death. Aurelia's sister Albia is one
of the chief suspects.
This second book in the series takes Aurelia from the quiet
countryside to the busy new garrison town of York where she must
contend with traitors and crooks, and face personal danger to
protect her sister and help her brother. If she fails, her family
will lose not just their mansio, but their lives.
