When Ruso rejoins his unit in the remote outpost of the Roman Empire kwn as Britannia, he finds that all is t well with the Twentieth Legion. As they keep a suspicious eye on the barbarians to the rth, the legionaries appear to have found trouble even closer to home-among the native recruits to Britannia's imperial army. A young soldier has jumped off a roof, killing himself. Why? Mysterious injuries, and even deaths, begin to pile up in Ruso's medical ledgers, and it soon becomes clear that this suicide is t an isolated incident. Can the men really be under a curse? And what has this to do with the much-decorated Centurion Geminus? Bound by his sense of duty and compelled by his ill-advised curiosity, Ruso begins to ask questions body wants to hear. Meanwhile his barbarian wife, Tilla, starts to find out some of the answers-and is marked as a security risk by the very officers Ruso is interrogating. With Hadrian's visit looming large, the fates of the legion, Tilla, and Ruso himself hang in the balance.
