Synopsis: N.B. R S Downie is published in the US as Ruth Downie and this book, RUSO AND THE DEMENTED DOCTOR, is published in the US as TERRA INCOGNITA.Wind-swept North Britannia, where the natives are in the mood for killing . . .Gaius Petreius Ruso, medicus to the Twentieth Legion, has been posted to the hostile north - and thrown into a no-win situation. Thessalus, the current doctor at the Fort of Coria, has confessed to a grisly murder and his Prefect demands Ruso take charge of the patients and convince Thessalus to retract his confession. Or else. It seems a reputation for solving tricky murders down south isn't always helpful.Unfortunately, the corpse is offering up few answers other than to suggest that the natives might be more murderous than restless. If Ruso is to identify the killer, he'll need all his wits about him to keep Romans, natives and slave girls from each other's throats.
About the Author: R. S. Downie is the author of Ruso and the Disappearing Dancing Girls, which was a New York Times bestseller (under the different title, Medicus) and is available as a Penguin paperback. She is married with two sons and lives in Buckinghamshire.

Book Description Penguin, Great Britain, 2008. Trade Paperback. Condition: New. First Trade. 464 pages. Multiple copies of this title available. It is spring in the year 118, and Gaius Petreius Ruso has been stationed in the Roman-occupied province of Britannia for nearly a year. After his long and reluctant investigation of the murders of a handful of local prostitutes, Ruso needs to get away. With that in mind, he has volunteered for a posting with the army in Britannia's deepest recesses-a calmer place for a tired man. But the edge of the Roman Empire is a volatile place; the independent tribes of the North dwell near its borders. These hinterlands are the homeland of Ruso's slave, Tilla, who has scores of her own to settle there: Her tribespeople are fomenting a rebellion against Roman control, and her former lover is implicated in the grisly murder of a soldier. Ruso, filling in for the demented local doctor, is appalled to find that Tilla is still spending time with the prime suspect. Worse, he is honor-bound to try to prove the man innocent-and the army wrong-by finding another culprit. Soon both Ruso's and Tilla's lives are in jeopardy, as is the future of their burgeoning romance. Terra Incognita shines light on a remote corner of the ancient world, where Ruso's luck is running short-again Quantity Available: 3. Category: Fiction; Historical; ISBN/EAN: 9780718149451.
