Product Description
For Carolyn Williams, the ancient Roman Baths of England are why she became an archaeologist. At a conference there, she finds the infuriating Greg Porter, who is unable to shake feelings about the place and has traveled from his dig in Egypt.
Carolyn's theories about the long-buried Roman Temple come up against others who are looking for it, hoping to find the long-missing torso of the statue of Sulis Minerva. Her head is in the site's museum. The rough looking Robert Hill does maintenance work in the Baths so that the can look for the statue. Museum guide Gladys Rigsby thinks he will give the statue to her, and believes it will give her eternal life. More sinister than either of them is the meeting's host, Winston Reed, who will pay top dollar for the complete statue.
Carolyn believes the Celtic monks, a tolerant breed of early Christians, sealed the temple long ago. One clue was a symbol on a photograph in a British library. Will the symbol help her find the long-buried portions of the Baths? And if Carolyn, Greg, and professor friend Scotty find the statue, will they live to reunite it with its head?
