Death in Roman Britain - Box Set: 3 Books in 1by Jane Finnis

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.

Jane Finnis read history at the Univeristy of London before working as a radio producer for BBC radio. She now lives in East Yorkshire and spends her time researching and writing about the Roman Empire.
