Publishers Weekly: 'Aurelia is engaging as the resourceful narrator-turned-detective...the plot is timely as conquerors seek to impose civilization on a barbarian culture that doesn't appreciate the new roads and government or the increase in commerce.' Bloomsbury Review: 'Get Out or Die is an enjoyable, convincing, and at times gripping read, a text where the setting itself shines as its most prominent character. With such a plucky detective and an amazing location...this series may be around for a long time indeed.' --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The book is set in Roman Britain in 91 AD. The country of Britain has never really bowed to the yoke of Roman authority and even though it is almost 50 years since the Roman invasion, many of the tribes in the north refuse to take up the ways of their Roman masters like those in the south of the country.
Tension is high and a young innkeeper from Italy, Aurelia Marcella, who runs an inn called the Oak Tree on the road to York finds herself under attack from a native war band, whose aim in life is to get rid of all things Roman. A traveller is almost killed close to the inn and he and Aurelia try their utmost to track down the rebels and their mysterious leader.
I don't know whether it is because the book was set where I was born and still live but I enjoyed it tremendously. Having a woman as the lead character was I believe inspirational, particularly when other characters from other author's placed in similar backgrounds, i.e. Falco, Gordianus, etc. are all male and although Falco the character of Lindsey Davis has visited Britain he is usually to be found in the streets of Rome. A series of Roman mysteries set in England is I believe an exciting format.

I am very annoyed about this book because i didnot realize it is the same story as book 1 under the name of "Shadows in the night." So people beware.Published on 31 Jan. 2015 by Cornish girl
