Ruso and Tilla's excitement at arriving in Rome with their new baby daughter is soon dulled by their discovery that the grand facades of polished marble mask an underworld of corrupt landlords and vermin-infested tenements. There are also far too many doctors--some skilled--but others positively dangerous. Ruso thinks he has been offered a reputable medical practice only to find that his predecessor Doctor Kleitos has fled, leaving a dead man in a barrel on the doorstep and the warning, "Be careful who you trust.” Distracted by the body and his efforts to help a friend win the hand of a rich young heiress, Ruso makes a grave mistake, causing him to question both his competence and his integrity. With Ruso's reputation under threat, he and Tilla must protect their small family from Doctor Kleitos's debt collectors and find allies in their new home while they track down the vanished doctor and find out the truth about the heiress's dead father--Ruso's patient--and the unfortunate man in the barrel.

The eighth gripping novel in the bestselling Medicus series, in which Ruso and Tilla investigate the death of the wife of Ruso's friend in the sacred hot spring of Aquae Sulis. A scandal is threatening to engulf the popular spa town of Aquae Sulis (modern-day Bath). The wife of Ruso's best friend, Valens, has been found dead in the sacred hot spring, stabbed through the heart. Fearing the wrath of the goddess and the ruin of the tourist trade, the temple officials are keen to cover up what's happened. But the dead woman's father is demanding justice, and he's accusing Valens of murder. If Valens turns up to face trial, he will risk execution. If he doesn't, he'll lose his children. Ruso and Tilla do their best to help but it's difficult to get anyone--even Valens himself--to reveal what really happened. Could Ruso's friend really be guilty as charged?

'Chaireas and Kallirhoe', Chariton's story of love and adventure (1st or 2nd century C.E.), is probably the oldest of the completely preserved Greek novels. The last scholarly edition was published in 1938 (W.E. Blake, Oxford). Now a critical edition of Chariton appears for the first time in the Bibliotheca Teubneriana, it is based on a careful evaluation of the textual tradition, and takes account of all the results of international research during the last sixty years.

H ιστορία διαθέτει ναυτικό φυλλάδιο και ταξιδεύει επί μία εικοσαετία μεταφέροντας θαλασσοφαγωμένους άντρες και θαλασσοφαγωμένες γυναίκες στους μεγάλους ή ασήμαντους πλόες της ζωής, από τη Σουραμπάγια στα βυσσινοχώραφα της Άνδρου, από τα τζενεραλάδικα και τα υπερωκεάνια στη χρυσαφένια αμμουδιά του Nειμποριού και στις ασκήσεις μελαγχολίας μιας παρέας κοριτσιών, από ένα ντοματοπίλαφο στο Mπουένος Άιρες στις πιστές λαρδομούνες που κρέμονται από το στόμα της Mούραινας κι από τις συμμαχικές νηοπομπές κατά τη διάρκεια του δεύτερου παγκόσμιου πολέμου στη Pίβα και στο λευκό διώροφο των Σαλταφέρων με το τσιγκούνικο ταβάνι, που σαν απλωμένο τουλπάνι έσταζε τους ήχους τού απάνω σπιτιού και μαζί τους ήχους του έρωτα στο πανομοιότυπο κάτω σπίτι, είκοσι τέσσερις λεπτές κυπαρισσοσανίδες που ρήμαξαν ζωές.
