Summary
"The Medicus Ruso and his wife, Tilla, are back in the borderlands of Britannia, tending to the builders of Hadrian's Great Wall. Having been forced off their land, the Britons are distinctly on edge and are still smarting from the failure of a recent rebellion that claimed many lives. Then Ruso's incompetent clerk, Candidus, goes missing, and soldiers ransack the nearby farms looking for him. Tilla's tentative friendship with a native family turns to anger and disappointment over this latest outrage. When a local boy vanishes, tensions between the Britons and the Romans threaten to erupt. As Ruso and Tilla try to solve the mystery of the disappearance--while at the same time struggling to keep the peace--an intricate and dangerous scheme emerges, and it becomes imperative that Ruso find the boy before it's too late"--From publisher description
