A fine summer in 100 AD and good government under Trajan Caesar promise well for the Roman settlers in the frontier province of Britannia. Aurelia Marcella runs an inn on the busy road to York. June is always 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. It is from a cousin, Jovina, inviting Aurelia to a midsummer birthday party. But the missive also reads as a plea for help, referring to "danger in the wind." At Isurium, Aurelia finds Jovina and her drunken husband and unruly children caught in a tangled web of greed, love, intrigue, and death. When violence engulfs the district, Aurelia suddenly finds herself in peril from enemies engaged in an anti- Roman plot and from family members bent on misguided or evil agendas of their own.

Aurelia just wants to attend her cousin's birthday party. The invitation peaks Aurelia's curiosity, since it mentions "Greeks bearing gifts" and "danger in the wind". A soldier killed at Aurelia's inn leaves possessions that indicate danger at the fort where her cousin lives. Add an abrasive tax collector, her cousin's two rebellious children, and various romantic alliances and it gets really difficult to figure out who is killing whom. A riveting read.
