A compulsively readable thriller that skillfully weaves together
past and present to uncover the sinister secrets buried in the
ancient stone quarries under Bath. Kit Parry is reluctant to take
the job shoring up the ancient quarries beneath her hometown of
Bath -- a place as riddled with memories she'd rather forget as it
is with Roman ruins. The miners certainly don't want her there, and
her burgeoning romance with lanky foreman Gary looks likely to
complicate matters even further. But when dark developments
threaten the spa town's placid facade, Kit must face up to the past
she's tried so desperately to bury. Someone wants her out of Bath
-- that much is clear -- but who was it that brought her childhood
to an abrupt end in the summer of her fourteenth year? Why has she
never been back to Bath, and how did she escape her violent father?
When Kit stumbles across evidence of a lost Mithraic temple, the
mysteries in her own past become entangled with a search for what
could be the archaeological discovery of the decade -- and what
turns into a dangerous obsession! Suspenseful, utterly compelling
and terrifically well-written, this is a sophisticated and
thrilling page-turner of a novel.
