Description
A scandal is threatening to engulf the popular spa town of Aquae Sulis (modern-day Bath). The wife of Ruso's best friend, Valens, has been found dead in the sacred hot spring, stabbed through the heart. Fearing the wrath of the goddess and the ruin of the tourist trade, the temple officials are keen to cover up what's happened. But the dead woman's father is demanding justice, and he's accusing Valens of murder. If Valens turns up to face trial, he will risk execution. If he doesn't, he'll lose his children. Ruso and Tilla do their best to help, but it's difficult to get anyone-even Valens himself-to reveal what really happened. Could Ruso's friend really be guilty as charged?

      • content: If you feel like getting away for awhile, I suggest the ancient British-Roman spa town of Aquae Sulis, circa AD 125. While people are being murdered there, your outstanding guide, Simon Vance, will keep you safe and entertained. In this eighth novel about Roman Medicus Ruso and his feisty British wife, Tilla, we've been called to what's now Bath, England, because Ruso's friend and fellow medicus, Valens, has been accused of murdering his wife, who was found stabbed in a holy hot pool. Vance performs with the confidence of being the longtime narrator for the well-written, deeply researched series. His pacing is vigorous without being too fast, his narrative voice endlessly listenable, and his interpretations of major and minor characters imaginative and revealing. A.C.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award � AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine
