Get Out or Die
by Jane Finnis Poisoned Pen Press

Category: Fiction / Autobiography
0 pages; ISBN: 1590580753

Rating: 7/10  (Ratings explained)
Reviewer: Anne K. Edwards


Get Out or Die is a tale filled with surprises that will keep any reader fascinated. The Romans may have built their roads straight from one point to another, but the roads laid by the author, Jane Finnis, contain twists and traps for the unwary reader who assumes they have figured out the plot. Aurelia and her sister run an inn near the village of Oak Bridges that lies on the road traveled by Roman citizens and Roman soldiers as well as the natives. Someone is killing and beheading Romans only, an omen
of native unrest and growing hatred of Roman rule. Or is it something else? Who is the Shadow of Death, the masked leader of the killers? Is he a rich native or just a tribal warrior who remembers the old days of self rule and wants them
back? These are questions Aurelia and others are
asking themselves as they try to solve the murders and protect themselves from attack. Aurelia must concern herself with all these problems and more when a mystery man turns up nearly dead in her courtyard. When he wakens, she must decide whether she can trust him any more than she can her neighbors who she thought of as friends. Until now. A great read that gives us a look at what life might have been like in Britain under Roman rule. Highly recommended as a story you will have a hard time putting down. Ms. Finnis gives the reader a unique and original story and you'll be looking for other books by this talented author. Enjoy.
