RUSSO IS CLUELESS AS USUAL Lured by the promise of work by his friend, Valens, Russo returns to Britannia with his new wife Tilla and their wedding crockery. To Russo’s chagrin, the job is not as a medicus, but as an investigator searching for missing tax collectors and tax money. The element of mystery in this historical fiction mystery is rather weak as we are led to suspect the death of the tax collectors from the beginning. It is only the details that are lacking. However, the primary element that supports this series is present – the “everyman” character of Russo and his frustration in trying to understand women in general and his wife in particular. It amazes me that Ruth Downie appears to understand the mindset of men while I am nearly as clueless as Russo and Valens concerning women. It doesn’t seem fair but it makes this series distinctive.
