About this title


When Alan Morris disappears, his great-niece, Charlotte, regrets never having got to know him better. Although she never met the vanished professor of archaeology, Charlotte's concern is for his welfare. She hopes and expects that he will return from Turkey, which he should have done six months ago. In an attempt to better understand her grandmother's brother, Charlotte begins reading the books he authored. One of them leads her to visit the Roman site of Aurae Phiala, on the Welsh border - the last place her great-uncle worked before leaving England. But when Charlotte arrives she finds more than just a few old stones. When a schoolboy disappears on a tour of the site, and turns up dead not long afterward, Detective Inspector George Felse takes charge of the case and finds himself having to solve a mystery whose roots go back to ancient Roman times...
