Books nine through eleven in the Claudia Seferius mystery series are now in one volume! SECOND ACT The corpse in the shallow grave couldn't find rest. "You'll never get away with my murder," she cried. "They'll find you in the end. One way or another, they will find you. And then you'll have to pay." But her killer has no intentions of being caught. Joining a troupe of traveling actors (aren't all killers actors at heart?), there's no better place to hide out. Until the group is invited to spend Saturnalia with Claudia Seferius... WIDOW'S PIQUE Five generations under the eagle. Butchers under the skin. When the King of Histria invites Claudia to visit, she assumes the contract he wants her to sign is for wine. How wrong can she be? Virtually a prisoner in a land where brutality is ingrained, she is deeply suspicious of the recent run of bad luck that has befallen the King's family. And where is he? If the King was so desperate to meet, why will no one take her to the Palace? And why, when she witnesses a murder, does no one believe her..? STONE COLD The Watcher waited until she bent down to gather a handful of bilberries. The woodland floor was soft and springy. The Watcher's feet made no sound. Claudia was just ten when her father marched off to war and never came home. Now it's time to uncover the truth about his disappearance. Her search takes her to the dark forests of Gaul, where Druid Law rules and human sacrifice is still practiced in secret. Staying at the villa of the cold, commanding Marcia, Claudia notices that several young women have gone missing, and while suspicion falls on a mysterious character who lives in the woods, she isn't convinced. Marcia only employs perfectionists for her projects. Nor has it escaped her notice that each victim is unblemished and in the fullness of bloom. Just like Claudia...
