Praise for the Aurelia Marcella Roman Mysteries 'I love to read historical novels that manage to transport me to a time and place. Jane Finnis does just this....We can identify with the strong female protagonist while she remains true to her time.' -Rhys Bowen, multi-award winning author In 100 AD, good government under Trajan Caesar promises well for the Roman settlers in the frontier province of Britannia. Aurelia Marcella's inn on the road to York is busy. But one day two unusual events occur: a soldier is murdered in his bed at the inn, and a letter arrives from Isurium, a small fort north of the city. Her cousin, Jovina, invites Aurelia to a midsummer birthday party. But the missive ends with plea for help, referring to 'danger in the wind.' The murdered soldier also bore a message indicating violence would erupt at the very same fort on the day of the party. Arriving at Isurium, Aurelia finds Jovina and her family caught in a tangled web of greed, love, intrigue, and death. When violence engulfs the district, Aurelia is thrust into peril from enemies engaged in an anti-Roman plot and from family members bent on agendas of their own.... Jane Finnis lives in Yorkshire in northern England with her husband Richard. Danger in the Wind is the fourth in the series. When not writing, Jane enjoys travel, the company of two cocker spaniels, her garden, and playing her guitar. www.janefinnis.com
