Ruso takes a leave from his duties as army surgeon in Brittania to go home to Southern Gaul, when he gets an urgent letter from his brother. It turns out that the family farm is in danger of being taken away by Severus, the new husband of Ruso's previous wife. But things get worse when Severus dies of poisoning at the farm in Ruso's presence. It all turns out well, thanks in part to the sleuthing of Ruso's British housekeeper/lover Tilla. There's a very funny chapter where Tilla goes to a small Christian meeting. She likes the idea of a god who's everywhere and can see everything, but doesn't like that this god won't do curses on her enemies.
