Ruth (RS) Downie left university with an English degree and a plan to get married and live happily ever after. She is still working on it. In the meantime she is also the New York Times bestselling author of a mystery series featuring Roman legionary doctor Gaius Petreius Ruso and his British partner, the enigmatic and independent-minded Tilla. Much of what Ruso has been told about Britannia isn’t true. Unfortunately much of what he’s told by Tilla may not be true either. And when it comes to murder, somebody is lying to both of them.
