Summary

For Carolyn Williams,the ancient Roman Baths of England are why she became an archaeologist. At a conference at the baths, she finds the infuriating Greg Porter, who is unable to shake feelings about the place and has traveled from his dig in Egypt.

Over the next few days, Carolyn's theories about the long-buried Roman Temple come up against others who are looking for it. What the others want is the long-missing torso of the statue of Sulis Minerva, whose head is in the museum. The rough looking Robert Hill does maintenance work in the Baths so that the can look for the statue, and museum guide Gladys Rigsby thinks he will turn the reunited statue over to her. She believes it will give her eternal life. More sinister than either of them is the meeting's host, Winston Reed, who will pay top dollar for the complete statue.

Carolyn believes the Celtic monks, a tolerant breed of early Christians, are the ones who sealed the temple. One of the clues in her research was a symbol she found on a photograph in a British library archive. Will the symbol help her find the long-buried portions of the Roman Baths? Will the statue be there? And if Carolyn, Greg and professor friend Scotty manage to find the statue, will they live to reunite it with its head?
