Description
Ruso and Tilla, now newlyweds, have moved back to Britannia, where Ruso's old friend and colleague Valens has promised to help him find work. But it isn't the kind of work he'd had in mind-Ruso is tasked with hunting down a missing tax man named Julius Asper. Of course, there's also something else missing: money. And the council of the town of Verulamium is bickering over what's become of it. Compelled to delve deeper by a threat from his old sparring partner, Metellus, Ruso discovers that the good townsfolk may not be as loyal to Rome as they like to appear. While Tilla tries to comfort Asper's wife, an anonymous well-wisher is busy warning the couple to get away from the case before they get hurt. Despite our hero's best efforts to get himself fired as investigator, he and his bride find themselves trapped at the heart of an increasingly treacherous conspiracy involving theft, forgery, buried treasure, and the legacy of Boudica, the Rebel Queen.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Author Ruth Downie and narrator Simon Vance have devised the perfect listening escape. Forget about modern life and follow medicus-turned-investigator Ruso to Roman Britain. In Book Four of this captivating series, the Gaul-born Ruso and his Brittania-born wife, Tilla, become embroiled in the death of a local tax collector. When Ruso is asked to help solve the mystery, he and Tilla leave Londinium for northern Verulamium (modern St. Albans), where they encounter a mess of treachery, hints of buried treasure, and the legacy of the warrior queen, Boudica. As always, Vance offers believable characterizations of everyone from bored Roman bureaucrats to native baths-house guards. His smooth delivery of narrative enhances the wealth of historical facts that Downie blends into the satisfyingly complex plot. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
