Ruso and Tilla have been asked by Ruso’s friend, Valens, to look into the death of his wife at the new bath house at Aquae Sulis. It seems she has been found stabbed in the heart and her father thinks that Valens is responsible. Valens is in a troubling spot. If he shows up for trial, he will surely die. But if he doesn’t his children will be without a father. This story has a little bit of everything in it. There is the initial murder that Ruso and Tilla are investigating. But you also have a new bath house that was just constructed that has had a murder, who will want to be there? What about those that worship the goddess Minerva Sulis and how this is affected by the murder? This is my first book from Ruth Downie. It was an interesting story. One that kept me captivated through the book. But it is so much more than just a murder mystery. You learn about the extended families and how everyone seems to be connected. I also loved the settings, I felt like I was right there in the bath house. I think this is a great story that can be read as a standalone book. But I have the feeling that if you read the other books in the series it would add volume to this world. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
