Publisher's Summary

Army doctor Gaius Petreius Ruso is waiting for the gods to smile on him. But, on a posting to the hostile North of Britannia, he's in for a long wait. He is waylaid at the Fort of Coria, where a fellow doctor has confessed to a grisly murder.With Tilla thrust outside the fort (and into the arms of a former lover), Ruso is landed not only with Doctor Thessalus' patients but also the tricky task of getting him to retract the confession.Facing a nightmarish investigation -trailed by the secret police, hunted by the Stag Man, and betrayed by Tilla, is it any wonder Ruso's seeking solace in the rather-too-watery local beer?


What the Critics Say

"Every bit as enthralling as Steven Saylor and Lindsey Davis." (Daily Express)
"Ruso is a comic invention whose fumblings lead him to the truth in spite of himself, and a character you can warm to." (Guardian)
"Steven Saylor and Lindsey Davis should be looking over their shoulders." (Daily Express)

Better than the first

This book I found much more satisfying than, Doctor Ruso's first adventure, but only after I got over the narrator, That is my only complaint, he made beautiful tough Tilla sound like an old hag.`
