It’s freezing in past due December, ninety five A.D. Roman settlers in Britannia are getting ready to rejoice Saturnalia. Innkeeper Aurelia Marcella, who runs a mansio close to Eboracum (modern York) in consort together with her (mostly absent) brother and her more youthful sister, Albia, unearths her plans for a calm vacation shattered whilst her brother makes a shock middle of the night visual appeal. His information? An enemy in Rome is attempting to spoil the kin by means of spreading rumors they're plotting opposed to Caesar. Lucius has, via an unwise affair, misplaced his task as a central authority investigator.

To upload to Aurelia’s woes, the mansion is threatened via a kind of security racket, and a celebration of wealthy, challenging tourists on the topic of the provincial governor rolls up on the door. Their quarrels, verging at the murderous, and their quest for a rebellious inheritor, the elder son, spill over into Aurelia’s household.

And then, on the Saturnalia banquet, one of many get together dies and Albia turns into the executive suspect. An outraged Aurelia is pressured to take care of conspirators—and threats—of all stripes in a narrative that strikes from the quiet nation-state to a hectic garrison town.
