First print-published by Wildside Press in 2002

Matilda Gray is an expert on antiquities, especially the Roman and Celtic artifacts found in Great Britain. But one thing Matilda has learned is that such relics of time past are not valued only by museums but also by unscrupulous collectors, and the illegal trade in such treasures can be deadly.

Gareth March is a Scotland Yard detective who must work—reluctantly—with Matilda to solve the
murder of a woman who knew too much about stolen antiquities. Solving the murder will earn him a promotion. And more—perhaps a greater treasure than Celtic gold is a relationship appearing when he least expects it.

The murder case, the case of the stolen antiquities, and the treasure coming to light at the excavation of a Roman fort are tied inextricably together. At last Matilda and Gareth have to stop arguing and begin a race against time to prevent another murder. They do, after all, agree on one thing: The risk of death makes life and love all the sweeter. There's always time enough to die.
