BRITANNIA, AD 91: a raw province on the frontier of a vast Empire. Life is cheap, and as Aurelia Marcella, a young Roman settler, is about to find out, so is death…
Britain in 91 AD is a raw, frontier province of Domitian Caesar's Empire where relations between the natives their conquerors are far from amicable. Tension is especially high in the north, where Aurelia Marcella, a young innkeeper from Italy, runs the Oak Tree Inn on the road to York.
SHADOWS IN THE NIGHT: AD 91: Is a savage murder a portent of rebellion, or something more personal, something more sinister?
A BITTER CHILL: AD 95: A party of rich, demanding and violent travellers descend on the Oak Tree Inn, and their raucous Saturnalia banquet culminates in death.
BURIED TOO DEEP: AD 98: A dying man's last words lead Aurelia and her twin brother into an underworld of greed and brutality and as they investigate a stolen horde of gold.
