Kane and Elizabeth head for home - and land at the edge of Roman Britain, on Hadrian's Wall. The wrong side of Hadrian's Wall.
When Kane is accused of murder just minutes after their painful arrival, they are both hauled into the Roman fort of Vercovicium, under threat of violence. But the new fort commander steps in, giving them his protection, and making an enemy of one of his own in the process.
Another murder pulls Kane in deeper, when something that belongs to him is found on the latest victim. This time, not even the commander can keep him from being arrested. Someone is setting Kane up, someone determined to see him die for crimes he did not commit.
Separated from him, and caught in a male-dominated society, Elizabeth does everything she can to free Kane. When he is badly injured by the man who first accused him, the investigation takes a dark turn, and she becomes desperate to prove him innocent.
She has to find the real killer - or risk losing Kane forever.

Good book. Interesting concept and good visualization of relevant time periods. Characters were well developed and believable. Refreshing to have an author rely on her writing talent and not graphic sex and violence to carry the story. Will buy more from this author
