    The Bull at the Gate by Linda Acaster

    Book 2 in the Torc of Moonlight trilogy


    ...an enthralling, nuanced read...


    Grief-stricken Nick Blaketon is working in York, a mediaeval city of half-timbered houses and tight cobbled streets where Viking re-enactors thrill the tourists. Yet once it was a Roman town that garrisoned the Ninth Legion and the Sixth Victrix. Deep in modern cellars a sacrifice stirs as a temple rebuilds.


    Nick believes his dead lover, Alice, is lost to him forever – until she erupts in a flood of water begging to be freed.


    Vibius Fulcinius believes the Christ-men aim to eliminate the true religions, and vows to protect the Temple of Mithras.


    York police believe Sophie Trevott is leading a double life, and that mentally fragile Blaketon is involved in her disappearance.


    When a Roman lamp appears on his desk, Nick suspects that Alice’s nightly visits are altering the flow of time. Before it realigns, can he can snatch her back from death and restore her to him?


    ...a beautifully crafted paranormal thriller...
