9781590589694: Shadows in the Night (Aurelia Marcella Roman Series)

 Roman Britain in 91 AD is a troublesome part of the mighty Empire ruled by Domitian Caesar. Tension is especially high in the north, where Aurelia Marcella, a young innkeeper from Italy, runs the Oak Tree Mansio on the road to York. A string of savage murders disrupts her peaceful life, and she and her Roman friends find themselves under attack from a secret native war-band, the Shadow-men, whose aim is to expel all Romans out. A traveller, Quintus, is nearly killed close to the inn. Soon he and Aurelia team up to track down the rebel warriors and identify their mysterious masked leader, the Shadow of Death. Reread the beginning of the Aurelia Marcella Mystery series starting with this, the first book (previously Get Out or Die).

About the Author:

Jane Finnis lives in Yorkshire, northern England, with her husband Richard. Her mysteries are set in Yorkshire too, but nearly two thousand years ago, in the days of the Roman Empire. They feature innkeeper Aurelia Marcella and her family. When not writing, Jane enjoys travel, the company of two cocker spaniels, her garden, and playing her guitar.

Review:

""Aurelia, latest in a long line of capable women who brighten historical fiction, joins forces with a Roman soldier/spy named Quintus to find and expose this high-level traitor. And anyone who--like author Finnis--has ever marveled at how straight and well-built many of the Roman roads of England still are should enjoy this entertaining look back."" —Dick Adler, Chicago Tribune
